Student Health

You can make an appointment with the Student Health and Support for any of the same reasons you would see your health provider at home.

General information

Have you got a cold or the flu? The information about colds in adults on www.healthinfo.org.nz may help you. Click A-Z health topics and navigate to Colds > Colds in adults.
 
If you still have questions after reading this information, please phone Student Health on 325 3835.
 
Student Health and Support is now accepting 2017 registrations for new patients. Register now.
 
Some examples of the kinds of things they can help you with are:
  • Health assessments for illness or injury
  • Health advice and education
  • Medical reports
  • Immunisation
  • Sexual health and contraception
  • Minor surgery
  • Counselling and mental health concerns
  • International student advice (anything from personal, social, cultural, educational, legal, or financial)
  • Aegrotat assessments.
And if you’re moving into the halls, or even a flat with friends, we support the NZ Ministry of Health recommendation that you get immunized for Meningitis C.  Click here to find out why.
 
Even if you’re not sure whether they are the right people to talk to, get in touch. They work collaboratively with all of the University’s support services, so they’ll be able to point you in the right direction.
 
All discussion with Student Health are strictly confidential.
 

How to register at Student Health

Students are not automatically enrolled in the Health Centre - even if you have paid your Student Services Levy.
 
Domestic students
Registration reassigns your government health funding to us from your previous GP and is essential to receive heavily subsidised student healthcare at Lincoln University. We strongly suggest you also have a WINZ issued community services card and your Lincoln University student ID card.
 
To register:
  1. Please download an enrolment form 
  2. Complete the form in black pen and post it to Student Health and Support or fax it to 03 3253881
  3. We will contact you if your form is not legible once printed to meet enrolment criteria.
International students
If you are an international student visiting the Health Centre, you do not have to pre-register (although easier before you need us).
 
To register:
  1. Please download the international enrolment form
  2. Complete the form in black pen and post it to Student Health and Support or fax it to 03 3253881
  3. We will contact you if your form is not legible once printed to meet enrolment criteria.
 
Please read your insurance policy carefully to ensure your condition is covered prior to seeing us.
 
When you visit the Health Centre, the cost of your appointment can be billed directly to your insurance company if you have used Allianz (studentsafe). Without this approved insurance provider, you will be required to pay upfront at the Health Centre and claim the costs back through your insurance company directly.

Cost

For domestic students, if you enrol with Student Health and Support as your Primary Health Organisation (PHO) you can save money on your consultations. To do this, you’ll need to fill out an enrolment form, and read about enrolling with a general practice.

For international students, if you choose to register with Student Health and Support and have student safe insurance, we are able to bill the insurance provider directly.
