COVID-19 News and Updates from the Student Health Center

For the safety of our patients and staff, in-person appointments for acute illnesses or injuries will be scheduled only after an initial telemedicine consultation/triage in which the provider determines an in-person visit is medically necessary in order to provide treatment or care.

If you are experiencing a medical emergency, call 911 or proceed to the nearest emergency department. The Student Health Center is not an Urgent Care Center or Emergency Department.

  • The Psychiatry clinic will continue to offer TelePsychiatry Services.
  • The Campus Pharmacy will continue to offer limited contact services.
  • Walk-in inquiries or requests for appointments are not available.

In-person appointments are available for immunizations, lab testing, Routine Physicals, and Routine Annual Women's Health Exam. You may schedule your immunization appointments through the Health Coog Patient Portal.

During business hours, you may contact us at 713-743-5151 and we will assist you per our normal business hours procedures. Walk-in inquiries or requests for appointments are not available.

Prior to scheduling an appointment, you are required to go to our Healthy Coog Patient Portal to complete the required consent forms, health history, and verify/update your profile. You will be unable to schedule an appointment until these steps are completed.

Anyone entering the Student Health Center for an in-person appointment or other clinic business will be required to complete a COVID screening questionnaire and will be given a surgical mask to wear while in the clinic.
