Here when you need us, from aches to X-rays.
Whether you're not feeling well, need a physical or require a vaccination, the Health Center is here for you. Located in Gosiger Hall, the Health Center is staffed by a team of family physicians and registered nurses.
The Health Center is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday during the academic school year (not including University breaks and holidays). Appointments are required, except in the case of emergencies. To schedule an appointment, call 937-229-3131. Students can also make or cancel appointments, enter medical history, and insurance information through our portal.
All students are required to show evidence of adequate immunizations and do a screening for tuberculosis ("TB") (Arabic, Chinese versions). All University of Dayton students must have medical health insurance. International students must also have medical health insurance and submit proof of insurance on an annual basis.
While the Zika virus has been much in the news this year, infection with the virus is unlikely for people living in the Dayton area. However, the University of Dayton Student Health Center providers and staff maintain a focused vigilance for the safety and security of the UD community.
With the summer travel season starting, anyone traveling to or living in areas where mosquitoes are common — the southern United States, Caribbean, Latin America, West Africa and the Pacific Islands — should use precautions to reduce their risk of being bitten. A number of diseases in addition to Zika can be spread by mosquitoes include dengue fever and malaria.
The most common symptoms of Zika are fever, rash, joint pain and eye irritation. Although these symptoms are usually mild, the Zika virus is suspected to cause serious birth defects, so pregnant women are most at risk. However, most people who are infected do not have any symptoms, so follow-up care and vigilance when you return home is essential.
If you have questions or are traveling to any of the affected areas, please contact your primary care physician or the University of Dayton Health Center at 937-229-3131.
