The Student Health Unit (located upstairs in Áras na Mac Léinn) provides a confidential general practitioner service.
Most services provided by the Health Unit are FREE. Upon entering the Student Health Unit for the first time, you will be required to fill out a form. Information on the form will only be seen by Health Unit Staff to note your medical history.

The opening hours of the unit are 9.15am – 12:30pm and 2:30pm – 4:30pm Monday to Friday.

The Health Unit operates on a walk in triage basis daily with students seen on a first come, first served basis.

There is no charge to visit the nurse or doctor, however, there are charges for certain ancillary services such as physiotherapy and holiday vaccinations.

Students may attend the nurse from 9:15pm to 4:30pm without appointment. The service is entirely confidential.
