For Parents


The transition to college is an exciting time in the life of your student. It is sometimes more difficult for the parents, often miles away, than for the students. We realize that it is also more taxing when your children are sick. That’s why University of Pennsylvania provides comprehensive Student Health Services.

We are a full-service primary care center providing accessible, cost-effective, and customer-focused health care designed to meet student needs.  This includes care for acute and chronic health problems, preventive health services, and health and wellness education. We work in close collaboration with the other departments in the University Life Division, and with our colleagues in the University of Pennsylvania Health System.
