Student Health Service

Welcome to the Student Health Service! These pages provide tips on how to look after yourself during your studies – physically and mentally. You can get supportive counselling, health advice and take part in courses and lectures. If it hadn’t been for the pandemic, you could also have visited us to get tested for chlamydia, gonorrhoea or HIV.

You can turn to the Student Health Service for help if you feel stressed, worried, depressed, or have questions about personal relationships. It may also be about your alcohol or tobacco habits, that you have difficulty sleeping or anything else that concerns your health.

At the Student Health Service, social counsellors, nurses, a physiotherapist and a public health planner work. All our services are free of charge and we have a professional obligation of confidentiality.
