Primary Care Services at UP

At the Student Health Center, every student is a priority. Our team of healthcare providers partner with students in their health journey. We provide confidential services including evaluation and treatment of illnesses and injuries, preventative care, and health education to ALL ACTIVE STUDENTS regardless of their health insurance coverage. University of Portland students who are currently enrolled full-time or part-time are eligible for primary care services and treatment. 

Students who are on academic suspension or who have taken a medical or other leave from the University are not eligible for services, but may be seen for a one-time consultation appointment for assistance with off-campus referrals. Alumni, former UP students, faculty, and staff are not eligible for services. Staff and faculty who are enrolled in classes using the employee benefit are not eligible for Health Center services.

Primary care services offered at the Student Health Center include:

  • Primary and Acute Care
  • Laboratory Tests and Orders
  • Prescriptions and Refills (Please note the Health Center does not prescribe narcotic pain medications, sleep medications, stimulants, or benzodiazepines)
  • COVID-19 Antigen and PCR Testing
  • Sexually Transmitted Infection/Disease Testing
  • Gynecological Services
  • Psychiatric Consultations
  • Eating Concerns support and assessment
  • Alcohol, Tobacco, and Other Drug Prevention Education
  • Flu and COVID-19 Vaccines (when stock is available)
  • Travel Consultations
  • Referrals to other medical specialists

Due to confidentiality concerns, our providers do not answer medical questions over email. If you have any questions or concerns, please call the front desk at 503.943.7134 to make an appointment or speak with a nurse. Providers may also send their patients secure messages through the secure patient portal.

Students must complete online consent forms prior to their first appointment at the Health Center. This can be found in your secure patient portal under "Medical Clearances".

Labs & Imaging

Most lab work can be collected on site and billed to your health insurance or paid out-of-pocket. The cost for lab work submitted through your insurance is subject to your coverage. Please contact your insurance company prior to lab collection for estimated out-of-pocket costs.

We also accept outside lab orders from your home doctors or specialists. Lab orders from outside providers can be faxed (503.943.7199) or emailed ( to the Student Health Center. Once your lab orders have been received, call the Health Center at 503.94.7134 to schedule your lab draw appointment.

We do not have on site imaging services (X-ray, Ultrasound, CT, etc.), but we can order imaging at local hospitals or imaging centers that accept your insurance.

Confidentiality Statement

The Student Health Center staff value our ability to provide students with a safe and confidential place to seek help. Therefore, we will not disclose student information (including appointment history and medical records) to parents, friends, coaching staff, or faculty unless we have signed release from the student. 

Commitment to Inclusion

The Health Center staff are committed to providing an emotionally safe, accessible, and compassionate space for all University of Portland students. We strive to integrate multicultural humility and competence into our everyday functioning, firmly planted in the belief that all people have dignity and are deserving of respect. Grounded in this foundation, we support students of all identities including age, gender, culture, race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, language, mental and physical ability, national origin, religion, spirituality, size, socio-economic status, immigration status, political perspective, and world view. Our staff are committed to opposing microaggressions, discriminations, prejudice, and all forms of oppression.
