Student Health Counselling
Counselling is available to all students* at Lund University and Alnarp/Flyinge. *Please note that doctoral/PhD candidates should seek help from the Occupational Health Service of Lund University, not the Student Health Centre.
The staff at the Student Health Centre works primarily with problems that affect your ability to study, such as stress, worry, anxiety, depression and/or academic difficulties. It is a complement to other public and private health clinics in Lund where you go for general medical issues, sexual health and contraception.
We understand how difficult it can be to adjust to life in a new country. As professional listeners we are here to support you and assist you in overcoming any obstacles you may encounter. Our work is of course confidential.
How to contact us
If you want to speak to a student welfare officer, we ask you to fill in our online contact form (self-referral form). Once a week we go through all the contact forms and then contact you to let you know whether we are able to accommodate you or refer you elsewhere.
For advice, call +46 (0)46 222 4377 Monday and Wednesday 13:00–14:30. For emergencies, see here.
Students at the Faculty of Engineering who wish to speak to a student welfare officer can turn directly to the welfare officers at the faculty.
There will be a charge of SEK 60 for your visit. Only credit/debit card payments are accepted. You will also need to bring photo ID to your appointment.

Statutory medical examinations for students (e.g. working with laboratory animals or human material)
Students who are regularly exposed to laboratory animals or biological agents as part of their studies shall be offered a medical examination. The head of department/equivalent is responsible for the risk assessment. For supporting material, please see the LU Estates documents on Medical Examinations. (Please note that the order form is not to be used for students).
Medical examinations for students are not performed by Lund University’s Occupational Health Service or the Student Health Service. The organiser of the programme or course concerned must arrange the examinations through an external provider.
