The University of Alabama provides high-quality and easily accessible health care for its students through the University of Alabama Student Health Center and Pharmacy (SHC). Located at the corner of 5th Avenue East and 4th Street East and adjacent to the UA tennis courts, the SHC is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). The SHC can meet most ambulatory medical needs of University of Alabama students, including women’s health, psychiatry, ADD/ADHD, medical nutrition therapy and allergy/immunization services as well as international travel medical evaluations. We provide referral services for other medical services when needed. For convenience, students may make certain SHC appointments through our Patient Portal accessible through their MyBama account. Those requiring appointments with our specialty services above should call the appointment line 205-348-2778.
