What is Student Health Services?

All students currently enrolled at Eastern Kentucky University receive free health care through Student Health Services. Located in the Rowlett Building on the #CampusBeautiful, Student Health Services is an acute, walk-in clinic, which allows students to come in based upon their own schedules.

When you visit Student Health Services, there is no co-pay and they do not bill your insurance. However, you may be charged for vaccinations and certain lab work.

Student Perspective

To gain deeper insight into Student Health Services, we asked a student who had visited recently. The following quote is directly from a current student at Eastern Kentucky University: “One morning I woke up late and hadn’t eaten any breakfast. When I was in class, I fainted. Student Health Services offered to see me immediately. They ensured that I was okay and even gave me snacks to increase my blood sugar level, which had dropped. Student Health Services truly does care about student health and wants to see student’s succeed.”
