Information for New Students

Welcome to UGA! Here you will find everything you need to know about health and wellness at UGA. Our goal is to help you stay healthy and feeling your best so you can participate fully in the UGA experience. Be sure to call on us when you need support!

The UGA Health Center is your one-stop-shop for integrated medical, wellness, and counseling services. Every student is assigned a primary care provider home (Red, Gold, Blue, and Green). We are a fully integrated model which means we treat and recommend services that are unique to each patient's needs, whether that is treating illness, providing wellness resources, counseling, health coaching, and more.

You can depend on us for medical services, which are fully supported by an on-site lab, radiology department, and pharmacy. Additionally, we provide mental health care and specialty care, ranging from dental and vision to physical therapy, sports medicine, nutrition, counseling, and a full-range of wellness needs!
