Charges for Student Health Service

UCD is committed to providing UCD students with access to a comprehensive Student Health Service which complements their existing medical services (family GP etc). In the current economic climate UCD must change the way it funds this service. It is no longer possible to maintain a free service for all students. From September 7th 2009 students will be charged for services offered by the UCD Student Health Service. These charges will enable UCD maintain the current level of medical services and also provide a platform for additional services. The services operated by UCD Student Counselling will remain free of charge.

Due to funding constraints UCD will no longer be able to provide a free service to medical card holders.  Students with medical cards are still very welcome to use the service but unfortunately they will have to pay for it.

There are a number of doctors outside the campus who do accept medical cards and a list of these are availabe at Student Health reception.
