Health Form

You received a health form as part of your admission packet. For your added convenience we have posted copies below that can be filled out online and printed. Health forms must be completed and returned to our office before the beginning of the semester. Please visit the Immunization Requirements page for more information. It is a good idea to make a copy of all personal records.

If there is any way we can help you with this process, please call us at (630) 829-6046 or e-mail us at studenthealth@ben.edu. Our fax number is (630) 829-6035.

Request for Records

You can obtain a copy of your immunization records by logging onto MyBenU: 

  • Use your login name and password
  • Go to Campus Personal Information
  • Select immunization record 
  • Print

This is the same information that our office would give you. It is considered an official copy which you may present to your next school or employer.  If you are unable to log onto the site then the Health Service can provide you with a copy of your immunization records.  All information is on the computer but paper copies which you may have submitted during your attendance at Benedictine University are destroyed after 10 years. We suggest that you  print out a copy of your records before graduation or if you are planning to transfer to another school.

Although the Health Service is closed from May 15 - August 15 the staff does come into the office periodically during this time. Please take this into consideration when requesting records and allow for adequate time for our staff to meet your request.

To request your immunization records, you must provide written permission to our office, either by mail or fax. Our fax number is (630) 829-6035.

Along with your request, please include:

  • Full name
  • Date of birth
  • BenU ID#
  • Maiden name
  • Location where information is to be sent - the address or fax number
  • Home phone number in case we need to reach you

Wellness Education

The Health Service maintains a wide variety of brochures/pamphlets and videos on wellness related topics. If you are looking for information for personal use, class projects or programming let us know. There is also a VCR available in our waiting room for viewing tapes throughout the day.

Self Care

Sometimes you may have a concern that can be managed in without an office visit. When this occurs, we offer the following services to assist you:

  • Telephone Consultation: If you have a question, need information or are unsure about a health issue, please call us at 630.829.6046 and speak with one of the nurses.
  • Personal Health Kit: It is a good idea to bring a small supply of health care items to school with you for times when our office is not open. Good things to have on hand are: band-aids, pain relievers (Tylenol or Advil), decongestants and cough syrup.
