At 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.
