The Student Health Centre is located in block C, level M (room CM061) in the main building and provides a service for University of Limerick registered students only.

The Student Health Centre Reception normal opening hours are Monday to Friday 09:00-10:30, 11:00-12:45 and 14:00-16:30 but times may vary from time to time due to operational requirements.  Please see Clinic Times for specific clinic opening times.

The Student Health Centre is an urgent care/advisory service and deals with all general health issues as they present.  Any students with a long term medical condition which requires regular follow up should register with a local GP, as the Student Health Centre is not a GP service.

Please note medical card users may only use their cards for prescription purposes, for the contraceptive clinic and for the STI clinic.  All other services will incur a fee. Please state when booking an appointment that you have a medical card.

The confidential treatment of health information and health records is a professional obligation of all staff of the Student Health Centre. All consultations are treated in the strictest confidence and no information is given to others without written permission.

Information on child safeguarding can be found in the Student Health Centre's Child Safeguarding Statement, here. This service-specfic statement should be considered in the context of the overarching University's Safeguarding Statement.
