Injection at Student Health ServicesAt the Houston Center, healthcare needs are serviced out of two offices: TWU - Denton Student Health Services and the University of Texas Health Services (U.T.H.S.). The latter has a physical presence here in the Texas Medical Center, and welcomes visits by TWU students carrying their student ID. Conveniently located just down the street at 7000 Fannin, Suite 1620, U.T.H.S. provides care for illness and injury, and conducts routine physical exams.

Immunization Clinics
During the first month of Fall and Spring semesters here at TWU - Houston Center, Immunization Clinics are held with the on-site cooperation of U.T.H.S.  As students step into the clinical setting, having up-to-date immunization records with The University claims high priority. These records can be faxed to Denton at the Student Life Office, and the technology now exists for students to check their compliancy status online.
