Student Services University Health Services Center The Health Services Center, located on the north side of campus, is staffed by professional nurses and physicians. Students pay a health fee each semester which allows them to see the physicians for routine tests and examinations at no additional charge. Students living in the residence halls have the opportunity to request the care of a particular physician and medical facility in Mobile on a health data form completed at check-in. If no particular request is made, students are taken to the University of South Alabama Medical Center. Effective Fall 2007, all firsttime entering students born after 1956 MUST provide proof of adequate immunization against measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) before class registration. The form can be downloaded at A comprehensive insurance policy is available to South Alabama students. Details are available at Southbound Orientation or through the Vice President for Student Affairs.
