UHS summer availability

We’re here for you this summer

Here’s how you can access UHS services this summer

University Health Services is available to UW-Madison students this summer. Telehealth appointments are available and—to protect the health and safety of our staff and patients—a limited number of in-person visits can be scheduled. You can also continue to communicate with your providers through MyUHS secure message.

Mental Health Services Access Appointments continue to be available by phone throughout the summer and can be scheduled via MyUHS.

If you have a health concern during the summer but aren’t sure whether you need an appointment, contact UHS by phone or secure message. Providers may recommend you consider the Summer Health Fee ($110) that provides health care services May 17 through August 31. If you need help paying for the student health fee, UHS can assist you. Ask your provider for details.

How to pay the summer health fee:
The Budget and Finance office is currently closed and unavailable to take in-person payment due to COVID-19. Please pay online with this link.  Staff are working remotely but are frequently checking for any voicemails left on our main phone (608-890-1991).  For the quickest response, we highly encourage you to email and staff will respond during regular business hours from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
