Student Health Center


The Student Health Center is committed to providing healthcare services that support Lamar University's mission of engaging and empowering students with skills and knowledge to thrive in their personal lives. This is accomplished through an integrated approach of medical, psychological, and health education appointments and programming activities. These various avenues of healthcare delivery and education help students develop life skills in successful navigation and utilization of healthcare resources in society and beyond.

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.
