UW-Seattle Students

Welcome to Hall Health Center!

Hall Health offers a wide array of highly rated primary and specialty care clinics and services. You are automatically eligible for many valuable health services, which are available at no further cost to UW-Seattle campus students 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

Medical Care

  • Unlimited medical advice from our Consulting Nurses in person or by phone during business hours, or after hours by phone

Private Insurance

Most students have some form of health insurance, either through a family member, the UW International Student Health Insurance Plan (ISHIP) or the Graduate Appointee Insurance Program.   If you need insurance, there are many resources to help you find a plan and get enrolled. In most cases, Hall Health can bill your insurance for services provided. For those without insurance, it is possible to set up a payment plan. Visit Billing & Insurance for answers to your billing-related questions.

Medical Records
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.
