Student Health Center

Our mission is to promote the health and wellness of the university population by offering quality medical and psychological services to the students of Lamar University and Lamar Institute of Technology. The goal of the Student Health Center is to give you a same day appointment. If the volume of patients prevents this, you will be offered the first available opening that is appropriate for your visit.

The Student Health Center Immunizations information page addresses common questions regarding the bacterial meningitis vaccination and the tuberculosis (TB) testing policy.

Remember to stop by the Student Health Center and make an appointment for your TB test each time you return from travel out of the US to a country on the WHO list. Check the World Health Organization website for the latest news regarding tuberculosis.
