Director's Welcome

Thank you for visiting the FAU Student Health Services (SHS) web site. At SHS, we know that your health plays an important role in your academic success. We offer student-centered services to help you stay healthy while you’re a student at FAU, and to help you build healthy habits for a lifetime. SHS is a department within the Division of Student Affairs and our team of dedicated professionals provides primary medical, dental, women’s health and pharmacy services, along with public health services that help promote a safe and productive learning environment. We hold the core value of respecting all persons and strive to create a safe, caring and supportive environment.

SHS services are an important part of delivering on the university’s commitment to the Owls Care philosophy:

  • Caring for self

  • Caring for others

  • Caring for FAU

Remember, Student Health Services is funded exclusively by you, the student - it is YOUR health program. The health fee you pay every semester, which is included in your tuition, helps to underwrite the cost of making healthcare services available to FAU students. We will also bill your health insurance for the services we provide to help off-set the overall costs and help keep your health fee as low as possible. Registered FAU students may utilize our variety of health services regardless of health insurance coverage.

Again, welcome to FAU Student Health Services!
