Welcome to Student Health Services at
Illinois State University!
We are here for one purpose: to provide the best health care, preventive and insurance services to Illinois State students. We are a
full-service medical facility, similar to any family practice clinic. We want to help students value their health and become effective
consumers of health services for the rest of their lives. Please don’t hesitate to let us know how we can help you!
