Medical Emergencies

If you are experiencing a medical emergency, do not worry about whether or not the hospital you are going to will accept your insurance. Go to the nearest hospital or dial 911.

The International Student Health Care website provides information regarding insurance for international visitors.

For information regarding Houston area hospitals/medical centers, please go to:

Of course, anyone can come to the University of Houston Health Center, located at entrance 6 (six) off of Wheeler Blvd. Please keep in mind, however, that the Health Center accepts only student health insurance. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to call us at 713-743-5151.

Thank you and welcome to Houston!
