Student Health Services has got you covered!

A partnership with CHI Franciscan Health, Student Health Services (SHS) is committed to providing compassionate, convenient, and affordable healthcare services for University of Washington Tacoma students, from care for illness and minor injury to preventive medicine and women’s health. 

Funded by UW Tacoma student fees, office visits are free of charge. While some services at the visit may incur costs, such as some lab work and some vaccinations, they are offered at discounted rates and will be discussed with you before they are ordered.

If you have a medical or psychological emergency, please call 9-1-1 or go to a local emergency room. Student Health Services is not equipped to provide emergency treatment.

For a mental health crisis, you may want to consider the Pierce County Crisis Hotline at 800-576-7764.
