The Student Health and Wellness Center, including Counseling services, will be closed on Friday, May 6 for professional development. If you need to make an appointment, please visit our Patient Portal.

If you have an urgent/emergent need, please call 911 or go immediately to the nearest hospital Emergency Room. For all other healthcare needs that require attention, you may visit the UAB Urgent Care Center, located at 125 20th Street South, Suite 103, Phone 205-801-5251.

We apologize for any inconvenience.
  • SHS has a full time coordinator to assist you with your needs.
  • Referrals are made as appropriate and within and outside the UAB Health System.
  • Most referral appointments or procedures are scheduled for you before you leave the office.
  • In some instances, referral requests may not need an appointment with a SHS provider. The Referral Coordinator (Veronica Simmons, by e-mail or 205-996-5764) will let you know.
  • If you are referred by the emergency department or an outside office/physician, please let SHS know this as soon as possible so that we may obtain needed precertification with some insurances, such as Viva Student Insurance.
