Registering at the Student Health Centre

You can register with the Student Health Centre prior to your arrival at University. You can register by going to the health centre (Quad East, Lord Mayors Walk) and picking up a registration pack.  You can also pre-register online.


Please don't wait until you are unwell to register - we need time to get your details from your existing GP and you will not be able to book an appointment if you are not registered.


If you choose to register with them you will still be able to visit your normal doctor at your home address but you may have to be registered as a temporary resident.  Visit the Student Health Centre website to find out more.

You can call the health centre on the following numbers: 

Campus surgery (Quad East, Lord Mayors Walk): 01904 439101

For urgent advice and treatment when the surgery is closed, phone the surgery on the usual number and an answer phone message will advise you of an alternative number to dial.
