Who Can Make an Appointment

Currently registered UB students can use Student Health Services regardless of the type of health insurance plan they have. Note: Students in fully-remote programs are not assessed the health fee and therefore are not eligible to utilize Student Health Services. 

For Students Under 18

New York State law requires the consent of a parent/guardian for medical care (reproductive and sexual health care excluded) of persons under 18 years of age. If you are under 18, your parent will need to give us written consent to treat you.


There is no cost to see any of the health care providers at Student Health Services (however, there may be a charge for immunizations, labwork and other services, depending on your health insurance).

Same-Day Appointments Available

If you are ill or injured, we often have same-day appointments available. Contact Student Health Services to make an appointment.

Care When We're Closed

Call 716-829-3316 and listen to the full phone message on how to reach the after-hours nurse.

One Appointment Per Day

Patients are limited to one appointment per day with a physician, nurse practitioner or physician assistant.

How to Make an Appointment

An appointment is required to see a healthcare provider. If you need to see a doctor or nurse for medical care, please call Student Health Services at 716-829-3316 to make an appointment.

What to do Before your Appointment

Go to the Patient Portal to update your information and opt-in for text reminders.  Upload a picture of your health insurance card in the Insurance Card section.  Make sure you know your insurance company’s preferred lab (usually Quest or LabCorp). Set up voicemail on your smartphone. Make sure your voicemail box is not full, and check your messages throughout the day.
