Student Health Center

It's a basic truth - when you feel well physically and mentally, you function well. Unfortunately, things don't always go as smoothly as you would like. Little things (and sometimes big ones) can get in the way of taking care of yourself and doing well. This makes it difficult to do and feel your best.

Whether it is a sore throat or feeling stressed and worn down, the Student Health Center is here to help you. We are trained professionals committed to providing quality care to Saint Louis University students.
