Student Health Services

Benedictine University’s Student Health Services are here to help you stay healthy and focused on your studies. They offer a nurse-directed clinic for minor illnesses and injuries, along with health education resources. However, they don’t manage chronic conditions, so be sure to maintain your relationship with your primary care provider. All students need to submit a health form and immunization records before their first semester. The university also offers voluntary dental, vision, telehealth, and supplemental insurance plans.

Counseling Center

The Benedictine University Counseling Center offers confidential counseling services to support students’ personal, social, and academic success. They provide individual, couples, and group therapy, crisis intervention, and referrals, all in a safe and encouraging environment. You can refer a student by talking to them directly, calling the Center together, or walking them in. They prioritize students in crisis and can be reached by phone or visited in person.
