What Can I Do When I’m Sick?
USC students who live on or near campus most likely have access to the USC Engemann Student Health Center. How do you know if you have access? If you are registered for 6 or more units on the UPC campus, then you have already paid the mandatory student health fee. The health center staff encourages you to come to the health center for all of your primary care needs. Please bring your USC ID with you to your visit.
The health center is on the UPC campus near the Lyon Center. Whether you are sick or injured, we are here to help. Please follow the steps below to get the health care you need. Also, visit usc.edu/engemann for details about our services and wellness resources that we offer.
