Information for students, faculty and staff regarding COVID-19. (Updated: 17 September 2020)
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.
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.
During our telephone or drop-in hours, you get brief advice and can book an appointment for counselling.
For you who have a booked appointment for counselling
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.
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).
