University Health Service

There are two important items relating to the University Health Service (UHS) that you will need to complete prior to arriving on campus. There are separate instructions for domestic and international students. Please navigate to the section that applies to you below:

International Students

Health Insurance 
All full-time students participate in the Student Health Program, which includes the mandatory health fee and health insurance. As an international student, you will be automatically enrolled in UR Health Insurance, and there is not an option to waive coverage.

If you need to enroll a dependent, you can use the following form, which will enroll your dependent in insurance through July 31, 2021. This summer, you will receive a prompt from UHS to re-enroll your dependent for coverage from August 1, 2021 – July 31, 2022.

Health History 
The Health History Form is an online form used to document immunizations as well as current and past medical history. All required immunizations must be documented.

  • In order to receive online access to your Health History Form, you will need to set up a UHSConnect account. (Here are the immunization records that are required to fill out the form.)
  • If you are not able to complete the form in its entirety, please do the best you can and submit the incomplete form by the due date. You will be able to make an appointment with UHS upon your arrival in Rochester to take care of any missing requirements.
