The UVA Department of Student Health and Wellness (SHW) is part of the Division of Student Affairs and includes four core units—Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS), Medical Services, the Office of Health Promotion (OHP), and the Student Disability Access Center (SDAC).
- Our teams serve all UVA undergraduate and graduate students who pay the comprehensive health fees with their tuition. There are no co-pay costs associated with visits to care providers as they have been pre-paid with tuition as mandatory fees. However, there are charges for medications, lab tests, supplies for certain treatments, immunizations and allergy injections, and copies of your medical record.
- We are located in the new Student Health and Wellness building at 550 Brandon Ave. The SHW building is also home to a UVA Health satellite Pharmacy and Laboratory, the Gordie Center, UVA Kinesiology, the Student Health Office of Research Excellence (SHORE), and the SHW Radiology office.
- Have concerns or comments about care at SHW? Review our recommended resources and next steps.

A Statement from the Department of Student Health and Wellness
June 5, 2020
We, the UVA Department of Student Health and Wellness, condemn acts of racial violence and discrimination that have occurred against Black and African American people. We recognize that overt and covert racism and longstanding systemic inequities affect the well-being and success of our students, employees, and community members of color. These injustices have also contributed to a differential impact of health and financial losses, as well as sense of safety, to Black, Latinx, Asian and other minority communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. Health care and public health, without question, should function with social justice and equity as guiding principles. Our Department, including Counseling and Psychological Services, Medical Services, the Office of Health Promotion, and the Student Disability Access Center, as well as the Gordie Center, commits to upholding anti-racist policies and practices. We are listening and here to help.
