There are a variety of services and programs available to support students' experience at the University of Chicago. As always, Campus and Student Life is offering medical and mental health support, wellbeing and fitness programs, emergency and crisis resources, and programs to help you form stronger connections with your peers and explore your interests outside of the classroom.
Health and Wellness Services
- COVID-19 Testing: Students experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or who have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 can be tested at no cost. These students can call UChicago Student Wellness at 773-834-WELL, and, if appropriate, staff will schedule you for testing at the University of Chicago Medicine curbside testing clinic.
- Medical Services: UChicago Student Wellness provides primary and acute care for a wide range of needs. Medical services are available through a combination of in-person or virtual options. In addition to primary care, services include immunizations, STI testing, allergy injections, and contraception consultations. We strongly encourage students to get their flu shot, either during one of our flu shot events, or during a medical visit.

CLI has posted a list of resources to help RSOs operate virtually this quarter. CLI also offers leadership development programs to help students cultivate skills to become effective leaders.
Rockefeller Chapel and Spiritual Life
Rockefeller Chapel’s Sunday worship service is streamed and available on demand and features music from the vocal artists-in-residence, organ, and carillon.

Spiritual Life’s virtual programs include 20 Minutes Still Meditation, Community Meditation, yoga, and regular chai/coffee chats with staff.
Student Disability Services can help students with disabilities find services and accommodations to ensure equitable access to University programs. Students can connect with staff from the Office for Sexual Misconduct Prevention and Support via phone or Zoom to discuss any concerns related to sexual misconduct, including sexual assault, sexual harassment, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking.
Emergency and Crisis Services
