Physical Health

University Health Service

University Health Service (UHS) is your campus health clinic and wellness resource. University of Michigan students who are currently enrolled in regular classes on the Ann Arbor campus pay a health service fee as part of tuition. As a result, students can receive the following UHS services at no cost:

  • Clinic visits in Primary Care Clinic, Quick Clinic, Women’s Health Clinic, Specialty Clinics, and Nutrition Clinic
  • Nurse Advice by phone (734-764-8320), day or night
  • Laboratory testing for sexually transmitted infections (STI), pregnancy and hormonal testing for trans care
  • Sexual assault exam services and any associated laboratory testing
  • Wolverine Wellness services including Wellness Coaching, safer sex supplies, and Collegiate Recovery Program
  • And more

For other UHS services, students (and/or their personal health insurance) may be billed. See more at Costs for Students. Any out-of-pocket expenses depend on what kind of care you need and your insurance plan. Health insurance plans vary a great deal and may cover only part of the costs. Please check with your insurance about coverage, because students are responsible to pay any part that isn't covered by health insurance.

Recreational Sports and Fitness

There are three indoor U-M Department of Recreational Sports facilities:

Memberships are available to students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the general public. All University of Michigan students have an automatic membership which includes access to all of the facilities when they pay their student activity fee each semester. There are also many fitness classes and other recreational programs open to students. Learn more.

Nutrition and Healthy Eating

Maize and Blue Cupboard
The Maize and Blue Cupboard ensures that members of the University of Michigan community - whether on a tight budget or physically restrained from getting to a grocery store - receive equitable access to healthy, nutritious, and nourishing food.

Our emphasis is on creative, healthy and nutritious foods, international cuisines and sustainability throughout all dining operations.
