The student health centre, located in the University Centre, is staffed by doctors and nurses whose primary directive is dealing with student health issues. Make sure to check out their website for a further information about the services they offer. 

In case of an emergency, you'll be relieved to know that the province's largest hospital is also located on the St. John's campus. The Health Sciences Centre not only keeps you healthy, but it's a full scale teaching hospital. Our Faculty of Medicine, School of Nursing and School of Pharmacy are all part of the Centre.

To keep yourself healthy, check out the programs on self-care and healthy lifestyles, offered to students by the Student Wellness Program.
