Student Health Service


The Student Health Service provides on-campus medical and psychiatric care to registered UCD students. The service is provided with an ethos of respect, courtesy and integrity and operates to the highest professional standards.

The service is envisaged as an addition to the student’s own family doctor or specialist medical services. It operates within resource constraints so certain service limitations apply. Students should continue to attend their own General Practitioner, especially if they are Dublin based. The Student Health Service is located in the Student Centre on the Belfield Campus. All consultations are treated in strict confidence.

Doctor & Nurse Appointments

All consultations with the doctor are by appointment only. Please contact us by telephone or call into the Student Health Service to make an appointment. Please book a routine appointment for non-urgent problems or to follow up a pre-existing condition in advance. If you need to see a doctor urgently you should contact us in the morning to avail of our daily clinic for urgent appointments only. These appointments are designed to cater for one urgent condition and will be slightly shorter than a normal consultation.

In addition to normal consultations, certain ancillary services are provided. These include STI screenings, contraception, travel vaccinations and sports injury appointments.

HSE Medical Card

UCD Student Health Service does not have a General Medical Services (GMS) contract and is therefore unable to provide this service. Students who wish to avail of these services should contact their own GP. The Student Health Service will inform students if the GMS status changes.
