Student Health Service


About us

The Student Health & Counselling Service provides on-campus medical, psychological and psychiatric care to registered students of the university. The staff of the Student Health Service provides a service within an ethos of respect, courtesy and confidentiality and aim at all times to operate to the highest professional standards.  All consultations are treated in strict confidence.  No information is give to others without permission.

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 Dublin based. 
The Student Health Service regrets that due to resource constraints we are unable to see all students who request a same day appointment. We endeavour to see as many students as possible within available resources.

We ask that you assist us in the following ways:

  1. We encourage students from Dublin to continue to use their own GP
  2. We also request that you book one of our urgent slots when you are acutely unwell or distressed, and not for ongoing problems.
  3. Please be aware that when you are seen at an urgent appointment the doctor can only deal with the urgent problem.  You may be asked to make an appointment to deal with other problems.
  4. A list of alternative options is provided by the Service when we are unable to facilitate you
