Welcome to Hall Health Center!
Hall Health offers high-quality primary and specialty care to the UW community. UW-Seattle students are eligible for a number of health services at no further cost as a part of the UW Services & Activities Fee (SAF).
Note that you are only eligible for these no-cost services during quarters that you are enrolled in UW-Seattle classes. You can find the academic calendar here.
Services covered as part of your tuition and fees
- Unlimited medical advice from our Consulting Nurses in person or by phone during business hours, or after hours by phone

If you need services that we do not have available, we can refer you to outside providers. We are part of UW Medicine, which includes the UW Medical Center, Harborview Medical Center, and UW Neighborhood Clinics.
Most students have some form of health insurance, either through a family member, Medicaid/Apple Health, the UW International Student Health Insurance Plan (ISHIP) or the Graduate Appointee Insurance Program. If you do not have insurance or don’t know how to use your insurance, we may be able to help. If you are not eligible for health insurance, we can refer you to low-cost health care providers.
In most cases, Hall Health can bill your insurance for services provided. Visit Billing & Insurance for answers to your billing-related questions.
University administrators, faculty, parents, spouses and partners do not have access to medical records. Medical information is released only with the patient’s written consent, except as legally mandated in life-threatening emergencies and under Washington State law. UW Medicine’s Notice of Privacy Practices provides further guidance.
Dental & vision care
Hall Health Center does not provide dental or vision care. There are many dentists and optometrists near UW. If you have health insurance, find out which local providers are contracted with your plan by visiting your insurance company’s website or calling the customer service phone number on the back of your insurance card. If you need help identifying a provider, visit our Health Promotion office.
