Student Health Alert

COVID-19 testing offered in the Student Health Center is prioritized for students who present with symptoms, have been evaluated by a medical provider in the Student Health Center or for whom testing is deemed medically necessary. Students may contact the Student Health Center with any COVID-19 related questions. The Student Health Center can also assist students with locating an off-campus COVID-19 testing site. Testing sites can also be located by visiting Texas Health Trace.

The center is now offering virtual health appointments with the Student Health Provider, 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday-Friday. Appointments can be made by logging into the Patient Portal.

If you have the university Student Health Insurance Plan, you have access to a 24/7 nurse line and telehealth appointments by calling 800-581-0368. Virtual Health appointments are available to policyholders at no cost. Information about the Student Health Plan can be found on the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas website.

If you need a prescription renewal during the time that the Student Health Center is closed, please log in to the Patient Portal and send a message to your healthcare provider. The provider will be able to send a prescription refill to the pharmacy of your choice.

Flu Vaccine Now Available

The Student Health Center is now offering the flu vaccine for $5. For students with university-sponsored health insurance, the vaccine is covered at 100 percent. The vaccine is offered by appointment only. Please call 972-883-2747 to schedule.


The Student Health Center provides both primary and preventative health care to currently enrolled students who have paid the medical services fee along with their tuition. The payment of the medical fee allows students to schedule appointments with medical providers at no additional cost. The caring staff of licensed medical providers is committed to keeping students healthy and providing for their medical needs.

Contact Tracing for COVID-19

The Texas Department of Health and Human Services uses a public health process called "contact tracing" to help slow and contain the spread of COVID-19 in the state.

Contact tracing is a method to find and follow up with people who have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. People who were around an individual who test positive are called "contacts." By tracing the contacts of COVID-19 cases and having those contacts self-isolate if necessary and test when appropriate, the spread of COVID-19 may be reduced. Contact tracing also may help reopen the Texas economy faster and more safely.

Statement about Coronavirus

UT Dallas Monitors Coronavirus

The University of Texas at Dallas continues to monitor the outbreak of COVID-19.

Given the global nature of UT Dallas, we want to share important tips on how to stay healthy, and remind you of the health and wellness resources that are available. Please refer to the University’s COVID-19 webpage for more information.

Health and Safety

The health of our campus is very important. As with any communicable illness, we encourage students, faculty and staff to always take precautions to avoid becoming sick. Please review CDC guidelines on preventative measures.

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask.
    • The CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies), especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
    • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.

COVID-19 symptoms may include fever, muscle or body aches, sore throat and cough, fatigue and headaches. If you or anyone you know has traveled to countries designated by CDC as Level 2 or higher — where widespread transmission has occurred (see here for latest list) — or has been in close contact with a traveler to one of these countries and are exhibiting any of these symptoms, we advise that you follow guidelines recommended by the CDC.

The Student Health Center does not have masks available.

If you think you've been exposed to the virus, please follow CDC guidelines .
