Student Health Services

Student Health Services is here to keep you healthy while you focus on your studies at FIU. We understand why you may be hesitant to access health care, so we work hard to create and maintain a space where you can ask questions, get answers, and feel supported when making decisions. We regard students as individuals and coordinate care with you individually.

FIU Student Health Services offer a safe, private and welcoming setting to address all your needs and concerns. All clinical consultations and medical records are strictly confidential. Medical records cannot be released without the written consent of the student patient. Student Health Services provide primary medical and specialty care tailored to the unique needs of college students.

Your student health fee at work

These services are offered for free or at a lower cost due to funding from the health fee.

The health fee is a mandatory fee that all students pay as part of their tuition each semester. The health fee allows the university to provide affordable, high-quality clinical preventative care and mental health services at convenient on-campus locations by various departments.


For a list of all services and their fees at Student Health and Wellness, check out our Student Health Fee page here.
