at the University. Nurses are on duty during the day and evening and the University physician holds office hours two days each week. In addition, a doctor is on call 24 hours a day for emergency situations.
You should be prepared to purchase health insurance when you arrive. (Approximately
US$38 per month.) Care provided by the University is not sufficient in the case of
a serious illness or injury. (For example, treatment, in a hospital, for a broken
arm can cost US$2,000.)
The University will not be financially responsible for students who do not have insurance. Insurance may be purchased through the International Student Advisor's Office and will be billed directly to students.
