Student Health

Student Health have made changes to the physical nature of accessing their services: 

  • Due to the current situation surrounding COVID-19 they ask that all appointments are made over the phone so they can triage all those that need to be seen and let you know what entrance you should use. Phone 03 479 6082.
  • Please arrive just before your appointment time rather than arriving early to avoid unnecessary contact with others. 
  • If you have an appointment booked please phone or knock on the door to gain entry, but again do not arrive early.
  • Please also call ahead for Central Otago or Auckland medical services.

 

The Student Health Centre is located on our Dunedin Campus. It provides the same services offered by your family doctor. It also promotes health education, and offers health screening tests, nutrition advice, vaccinations and some minor surgery options. For students who have paid the Student Health Levy as part of their fees, the cost for a consultation is $15, or is free if you have a current Community Services card.

If you have not been charged the Student Health Levy (for example distance students), the service is still available but at a higher rate - please enquire for further details.
