The phone lines at the UNB Student Health Centre can be very busy. If you get our answering machine when you call during business hours, it means we are on the line with another patient. 

If you are cancelling an appointment there is no need to call. We take cancellations by email only.


In order to be seen by a practitioner at the Student Health Centre an appointment is required. 

Typically you don't need an appointment to access nursing services, however, due to COVID-19, there will be NO WALK-IN traffic without an approved appointment at this time. 


We take cancellations by email only. 


Check your health insurance policy for specific details (Student Union or Financial Services). These plans typically cover the cost of medications, and can assist with additional expenses such as crutches, private hospital rooms, etc.

Canadian students will have a Medicare card which allows for payment of the actual appointment.

**International students are now eligible for Medicare. Contact International Student Office for more information.


UNB/STU Health Plan holders: Physicians bill direct for medical services covered through the Canadian Medicare system.

Private Health Care Plan: You will pay for services at the time of usage, and it is your responsibility to submit receipts to be refunded through your private plan.

Full-time students who opt out of the UNB Student Health Insurance Plan (prescriptions) can still use the Student Health Centre or any other health care facility (walk-in clinics, after hour clinic, emergency room, etc.). Your health insurance is not tied to any one health care provider.


The university provides quality health services to its students, most notably our health clinics on each of the Fredericton and Saint John campuses.

The Student Health fee:

  • Is a university fee intended to provide an offset to the cost of providing health services
  • Assists with funds for projects and services through Counselling Services
  • Supports other campus-wide health and wellness initiatives

Contact the Student Health Centre by phone to review your test results with the nurse. You can also book an appointment with your practitioner if you would like to follow up with them.

If you are receiving calls from anyone at the Student Health Centre, it is at the request of your practitioner (physician or nurse practitioner). We contact students for a variety of reasons (follow up, test results, appointment changes, questions, etc.) The sooner you contact us, the more efficiently we can perform our duties, and you can be on your way! 

Dental services are not provided at the Student Health Centre. There are local dentists in the area.

You must be seen by a practitioner who will determine your course of medical treatment, inclusive of the requirement for specialists.

If a specialist is currently following you, the specialist can make a direct referral to a specialist in Fredericton to ensure your care plan. If you wish to be followed by one of our practitioners, you should bring any relevant medical history, test results, specialist reports, etc and provide them to one of our nursing staff upon arrival at UNB. For continuity of care we prefer the same practitioner follows you throughout your stay in university.
