Student Health Care
Students at the University of Borås have access to Student Health Care at the University.
The employees at Student Health Care have an understanding of students' lifestyles. We work with preventative health care and individual contact. We also offer support through discussions or certain treatments. The Student Health Care is a compliment to the district health care.
- All visits to the Student Health Care is free of charge.
- We work under professional secrecy.
- When you visit the Student Health Care for the first time, you need to bring a valid ID to prove your identity.
- We document all visits according to the Swedish Patient Data Act (2008:355).
- Please observe that we do not give advise though emails since there is no guarantee of secrecy.
Functions within the Student Health Care
At the Student Health Care there is a nurse and social counsellors. There is also a Student Pastor at the university who supports students.
The nurse can give you advice on health-related questions, perform simple check-ups or health care treatments. If you need further medical treatment you can also receive guidance where to turn.
The nurse can also test you for sexually transmitted infections and HIV and hepatitis. You can visit the nurse during drop-in-hours.
You can also book an appointment for a longer talk about your health. This Health-talk contains a dialogue about your health and lifestyle and (if you want) also a simple health examination. Perhaps you are considering quitting smoking or do some changes in your eating habits, this Health-talk may be the help you need to get started.
Drop-in Monday–Thursday at 10:00–12:30.
Other times by appointment.
Please note! Changed opening hours on drop-in the following days:
11 December open at 10.00 - 11.45

13 December open at 10.00 - 11.00 and 14.30 - 16.00
18 December open at 10.00 - 11.15

Sometimes several students come to see the nurse at the same time during drop-in-hours, and in that case there will be some waiting time.

Having the opportunity to talk to someone can often be the beginning of a change. This can be true whether you are having problems with your studies, have issues with your economy, are affected by crisis, feeling of grief, or if you are worried, depressed or stressed.
N.B. Currently the waiting time for an appointment is longer than usually. If you contact us now you will get time for an appointment in January.
