Student Health Center

Welcome to the LU Student Health Center.

Our mission is to promote the health and wellness of the university population by offering 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.


What to Know About Coronavirus

Taking an active part in preventing the spread of viruses can help keep the entire LU community safe. Lamar University is monitoring recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) regarding the spread of the Coronavirus. If anyone is experiencing fever, chills, cough, and/or body aches, they should get checked by a medical professional as soon as possible. Anyone who has traveled from areas around Wuhan, China or believe to have been exposed to the Coronavirus should contact the city or state health department immediately. The Student Health Center is open Monday – Friday 8am-5pm. Please call to schedule an appointment at 409-880-8466. Local medical facilities are found here for treatment after hours.
