Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to change some of our processes to maintain the safest environment possible. To ensure students receive care in the optimal setting and to reduce the risk of inadvertent exposure to COVID-19, we cannot provide any walk-in services during the pandemic. All services will be delivered by appointment only. Please call us at 412-268-2157 to discuss your needs. 

UHS Services

Allergy Shots

Update for Fall 2020:  Due to our expanded focus on emerging student health needs related to COVID-19, allergy shot services are suspended at this time.  We are happy to help students connect with a local specialist for allergy care.
