Student Health Center


Our mission is to promote the health and wellness of our community. We offer quality medical and psychological services to the students of Lamar University and Lamar Institute of Technology.

The goal of the Student Health Center is to give you a same-day appointment. If the volume of patients prevents this, you will be offered the first available opening that is appropriate for your visit.
