Summer Hours Update – Please note Norris Health Center (Medical, Counseling and Health Promotion and Wellness) will be closed on the following days over the summer: 6/19/20, 7/3/20, and 8/21/20. 

Eligibility and Services Offered

Norris Health Center, University Counseling, Health Promotion and Wellness, and Survivor Support and Victim Advocacy continue to provide services to our students during the COVID-19 pandemic. These services look and operate differently with the temporary transition to telehealth services and modified in-person medical services. If you are a student who has received services during this time and you have feedback for us, please contact us at nhc-help@uwm.edu.

Students who are enrolled in summer classes for credit and have paid the segregated fee are eligible to use the health center through August 15, 2020. Additionally, students not taking summer classes can be eligible for summer services if they took classes at UWM the preceding academic year and pay the associated medical and/or counseling fees. This summer there is a modified fee structure intended to limit costs for students while balancing any increase in service needs related to COVID-19.
