The mission of Student Health Services at Eastern Kentucky University is to provide our students with the best quality acute ambulatory medical care in a compassionate environment, while providing education on healthy lifestyles from which our students can benefit for the rest of their lives.

Student Health Services has three primary goals: first, to address any acute medical condition that threatens health, interferes with function, reduces performance, and serves as an obstacle to learning and personal growth; second, to educate our student body on healthy lifestyle choices that promote wellness and reduce the chances of disease—the preventive approach; third, to serve as a source of information and access to community based assistance programs. Services provided at the Health Center include:

  • Outpatient acute medical care
  • Allergy shots
  • Basic laboratory tests
  • Family planning clinic
  • Certain immunizations
  • X-Ray requests
  • Tuberculosis skin testing
  • Health education
  • Pregnancy testing
  • AIDS education/testing referral

A variety of free pamphlets, booklets, and other materials are available at the SHS. Students may utilize the computer terminal with Internet access in the SHS lobby to look up health related topics of interest.
