Services

Student Health Services is staffed by board certified health care providers that have a commitment to quality health care delivery to the University population. As a member of the Division of Mission and Student Engagement (formally Student Affairs), we support the mission to encourage students to be active and involved in their personal health and wellness. This will contribute to their academic success and social development during their time at Barry University and will provide life skills to take students into their professional careers. Student Health Services collaborates with the Center for Psychological Services, Office of Accessibility Services and Health Promotion. All registered students (excluding those enrolled in online programs only) are welcome to utilize Student Health Services. Graduate and PACE students will be billed the Student Health Access fee upon their first primary care visit of the semester.
