Maintaining your Health

UO Portland partners with Portland State University Center for Student Health and Counseling (SHAC) to provide health, counseling, and dental services to Portland-based students. Health Services enhances overall health and safety by providing primary health care to students, health education, outreach activities, and emergency care. The mandatory Student Health Fee included in UO tuition pays for the majority of services at SHAC, excluding some such as labs, x-rays, and dental services.
