Student Health Service

Welcome to the Student Health Service! We can help you with questions concerning your health and your academic studies. We offer counselling and health advice. You can also come to us to get tested for chlamydia, gonorrhea and HIV. On these pages, we have also collected tips for your health and lifestyle.

The Student Health Service has closed for summer between 29th of June and 7th of August

We are out of office and will be back on 10th of August. Please call +46 90 786 50 00 if you need to get in contact with the university before that, or send your enquiry to Infocenter.

For health care advice, call 1177. For emergency call 112.

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.

If you become ill and can not study

If you become ill and unable to study, there is important information from the Swedish Social Insurance Agency that you need to know. This is especially important to know if you have student grants and loans for studies, because illness can affect your student finance.

Read more about what you need to think about if you get sick or are staying at home with a sick child, at the Swedish Social Insurance Agency and CSN.

If you need to contact someone for medical care, contact your healthcare centre. If you don't know which healthcare centre you belong to or who to turn to: contact us at the Student Health Service first and we will assist you further. You can also learn more at the 1177 Vårdguiden (Care Guide).
