Welcome to the University of Maryland Health Center!

The University Health Center, a department within the University of Maryland Division of Student Affairs, provides high-quality, cost-effective health care and wellness programs in order to promote the health of the University community and support academic success.

Our goal is to be the provider of choice for health care and health information for University of Maryland students, to be recognized as a leader in collegiate health care, to be an important source of services for faculty and staff, and to be an integral part of the University’s educational mission. 

I invite you to preview our broad range of services on this site and we look forward to seeing you for a visit...when you’re sick or when you’re striving to stay healthy.
