Resources on and Around Campus

An unplanned pregnancy is an experience many of our students know about, hear of, or experience.  It is in these most confusing and lonely times that the UD community can be of great support.  As a Catholic Marianist community, UD provides an environment of love and acceptance.  In response to this call, we strive to open avenues of communication between single, pregnant women and the community.   Services through the Hand in Hand program includes:

Emotional Support*

Gosiger Hall

Dedicated to keeping you healthy and insured.

All incoming students for the Fall 2013-2014 semester and all returning students are expected to carry health insurance to ensure your health and well-being while attending the University of Dayton. All International students registered for Fall 2013 classes are required to carry health insurance and will need to complete a waiver process by providing proof of coverage.

The University of Dayton does not provide insurance coverage for students.  Students that are not covered under their parent's plan should seek an individual plan that will cover them while they are attending the University.

Students should always carry their insurance card (or a copy of both front and back of the card) with them at all times.

Gloved hands

These entrance requirements are among our easiest.

To protect the health of everyone on campus, the University requires all students to provide immunization information and do a Tuberculosis (TB) screening.

The form to fulfill this requirement will be available on Porches OR can be downloaded here (Chinese, Arabic versions).  Information must be verified by a physician, and must be submitted by July 1 for students starting Fall terms, and January 1 for Spring terms.

We encourage students to enter their medical history and insurance information directly into their Health Center Record at
