New and Incoming Student Notification
UHS welcomes the Class of 2018
and all other incoming Boston College students
Congratulations on your acceptance to Boston College. By now you have received your admissions packet with the requirements for immunizations, health history, and physical exam. If not, the pre-entrance forms can be downloaded from the UHS website. Please return the completed forms as soon as possible.
As director, I emphasize in an orientation session with your parents the importance of having your insurance information in the form of a card or copy. Please include a copy for the UHS records and carry your own copy. It is not necessary for a visit to Health Services on campus because those are covered in the student health fee. But in the event you need services off-campus, at the hospital for example, it will be much easier for you to negotiate the maze of the health care system if you have documentation of your insurance readily available.
Please review our UHS website for information on making an appointment or utilizing our 24 hour services. We strongly encourage appointments but we have walk-in services for urgent problems.
If you have questions or specific problems, please allow us to help. Call 617-552-3225 and we will make every effort to help you solve your problem.
Congratulations and we hope to see you in the Fall.
Thomas I. Nary M.D.
Director, University Health Services
