The center offers the students and staff of Université Côte d'Azur comprehensive care services adapted to each person. The care services were designed to perfectly complement the health programs already available in the region. A tight and extensive partnership has now been established with non-profits, general practitioners, local authorities, the Regional Health Agency, and the University Hospital.

One third of university students claim that at least once in the past 12 months they have refused to seek medical treatment or to pass medical tests for financial reasons. Because of these statistics, Université Côte d'Azur has decided to offer its students a health center that provides comprehensive care ensured by both general practitioners and specialists. Appointments can be made directly from the Doctolib platform and do not require any advance payment. 

In addition to these new measures, Université Côte d'Azur is maintaining its preventive health policy by organizing regular check-ups for all its student population. The university offers a variety of counseling services for students and staff who may need assistance in dealing with eating disorders, sports injuries, addictions, and mental health issues. 

Open to everyone – accessible care 

The health center is open: 
  • Monday to Friday: 8:30 am to 6:00 pm (and to 8:00 pm starting in 2023) 
  • Saturday: 8:30 am to 12 noon (starting in 2023) 
Appointments can be made by phone, online or in person. Slots will also be reserved each day for unscheduled appointments. When the health center is closed, patients are referred to other care facilities that are still open. When necessary, the health center gives users the contact details of medical and paramedical professionals to ensure coordinated and ongoing care. 
The University Health Center's mission of prevention, care, and access to basic rights is fully in line with the strategy and values of Université Côte d'Azur. Université Côte d'Azur centralizes local student health care.
