The Texas State Student Health Center provides primary care, urgent care, women's health, mental health, sports medicine, transgender care and travel health services to university students. We have experienced healthcare providers, including physicians and nurse practitioners. Services are available by appointment or on a walk-in basis. Medical, laboratory, digital radiography and pharmacy services are available on-site. The Student Health Center is nationally accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, Inc. (AAAHC).
The Student Health Center accepts private health insurance and offers significantly discounted prices to students without health insurance. Students with urgent medical needs will be seen regardless of ability to pay. The Student Health Center offers a university-endorsed student health insurance plan for students without insurance or those seeking more affordable coverage.
The Student Health Center also has a Health Promotion Services department that strives to help students succeed by promoting healthy lifestyles and creating a healthy campus environment at Texas State.

Good mental and physical health are essential to achieving academic and personal success. We encourage students to take charge of their health and make informed decisions that support a healthy and successful life. The Student Health Center stands ready to help students "Get Healthy, Stay Healthy and Live Well."
