The Student Health Centre is located in block C, level M, in the main building and provides a service for University of Limerick registered students only.
The Student Health Centre is an urgent care/advisory service and deals with all general health issues as they present. Our services include access to: doctor (GP), nurse, contraceptive clinic, sexual health clinic and physiotherapy.
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. For information regarding local GPs, please email.
The Student Health Centre is part of the Student Affairs Division which provides a comprehensive range of professional administrative and support services to the entire university campus.
During the summer months a very limited service is available at the Student Health Centre.
The telephone is manned Monday to Friday 09:30 - 12:30 and doctor consultations are available on Tuesday and Friday mornings only.
Anyone who needs an urgent appointment outside of these times may contact Dr Ronan Ryder's surgery - Old Windmill Medical Centre, Lower Gerald Griffin Street, Limerick. Tel: 061 313 919. Dr Ryder offers a student rate of €40.
