Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are requiring all students to call ahead for a screening. Please do not present at Health Services without calling ahead. If symptoms could be COVID-19, you will be asked to schedule a COVID-19 test and wait for a negative result before coming to Health Services for an in-person appointment.
Virtual physician appointments are available for students residing in Texas.
Students should call 9-1-1 first in case of a medical emergency.
The Trinity University Police Department has a 24/7 emergency dispatch number, which can be reached by dialing (210) 999-7000. TUPD will respond immediately to your location and summon an ambulance, if necessary.

We offer a wide range of student healthcare services on campus and the most commonly sought services can be found below. We do offer other services as well, so please contact us if you have questions or needs.
Trinity University does not assess a student health fee. Students can be examined by a nurse for a minor illness or injury, receive first aid treatment, and medical referrals or health counseling at no cost.
Any service fees can be paid by check, with TigerBucks, or through billing your university student account but Health Services cannot accept cash, debit card, or credit card payment.
All students are required to have health insurance, but Health Services does not submit insurance claims because we are not a participant of any HMO, PPO, or private insurance plan and are unable to generate an insurance claim form to file with your private insurance.
Health Services maintains an up-to-date referral list of local physicians. When a student sees an off-campus physician, the student is responsible for securing transportation, identifying an in-network provider, and paying the costs incurred.
Students with chronic health challenges are encouraged to identify a specialty provider in the San Antonio community to assist in monitoring their condition. If you need help identifying a specialty provider in the area, please contact our office.
