Health & Wellness

Health & Wellness Services 

As a parent of a college student you play a key role in your student’s health and wellness. Even though your child may be miles away from home, you will still be a primary source of health information for them. The UI's Student Health & Wellness office has compiled a family information page that will assist you in helping your student make a healthy transition to college life.

Student Health & Wellness provides primary medical and wellness care for registered University of Iowa students--the same care a student would receive from a healthcare provider in a hometown. 

Student Health & Wellness offers individually tailored, one-on-one health consultations to all University of Iowa students. Consultation areas include: fitness, nutrition, stress management, tobacco cessation, alcohol and drug use, and sexual health. Medical services for students including: allergy treatment, immunizations, clinical outreach, lab procedures, psychiatry, sexual health services, and more. 

To schedule an appointment with a provider, students can call (319) 335-8394.

Recreational services

The Department of Recreational Services is an integral part of the Hawkeye tradition. They are the hub of campus-wide competitive and recreational activities and maintain many campus facilities including the Campus Recreation & Wellness Center, the Field House, and the Hawkeye Recreation Fields. Events and programs enhance skills, foster life-long friendships, and teach the understanding of true sportsmanship while promoting healthy lifestyle choices. For more information, visit Recreational Services.
