The mission of University Health Services (UHS) is to support and enhance the health and psychological well-being of the University of Southern Maine community through clinical services, student training, and outreach.

UHS is committed to providing supportive, excellent outpatient clinical care and wellness education to the University of Southern Maine student population. We collaborate with students to attain their personal wellness goals. In addition to managing acute and chronic conditions, we care for our students by initiating referrals as needed and collaborating with other departments on campus to best support our students. 

In addition, UHS strives to reach students who do not seek our clinical services. We attend and host several tabling events during weeks of welcome, orientation, and de-stress week. Look for us at pop-up events around campus. You can also follow us on Facebook or Instagram where we post on a variety of topics and occasionally have contests.
