About UHS

uhs logoThe University Health Services, Tang Center provides comprehensive medical, mental health, insurance and health promotion services to all Berkeley students, and a variety of health programs for faculty and staff.

UHS also provides services to staff at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Berkeley campus Visiting Scholars, Postdocs and spouses/domestic partners of Berkeley students may also use UHS on a fee-for-service basis.

Services are designed to minimize the impact of illness, emotional distress and injury on studies and work. Coupled with health promotion and public health programs, UHS reaches all segments of the Berkeley campus community.

Note: A limited number of other categories of UCB and UC students, families and staff also are eligible to use all or some UHS services for varying time periods. The appointment office at (510) 642-2000 will help you verify eligibility. Spouses, domestic partners and other eligible non-student groups pay fees-for-service, which are higher than student fees.


University Health Services is a fully accredited health care facility. Our clinicians are licensed and/or certified in their respective fields. Members of the counseling and nursing staffs are state licensed professionals. All the professional staff undergo continuing education as required by their professional licenses. UHS operates an inhouse continuing medical education program that recently was named by the California Medical Association as the best among 600 such programs in the state.
