UChicago Student Wellness strives to make it convenient for students to make appointments, communicate with clinicians, and access health records. We have one integrated health record system for all your activity with UChicago Student Wellness: my.WellnessPortal. This integrated platform allows us to facilitate comprehensive, holistic care, and will enable many convenient features including online appointment scheduling, single-sign-on using your CNetID, and secure messaging with your clinicians. All registered students already have an account.
The my.WellnessPortal enables students to:
- Schedule many types of appointments online
- Submit required immunization records
- View and print immunization history
- Complete health histories and required consent forms
- Communicate securely with UChicago Student Wellness providers and staff
- Complete intake forms
Patients of UChicago Medicine (including students who have been treated at UCM) can continue to use MyChart for any care received at UChicago Medicine. However, now that UChicago Student Wellness has transitioned to a new system, students can no longer use MyChart (through UChicago Medicine) for their UChicago Student Wellness records or to communicate with their UChicago Student Wellness providers.
Students can currently submit proof of their required immunizations via the my.WellnessPortal.
The State of Illinois and the University require all incoming students to provide proof of immunization. On my.WellnessPortal, students can download the immunization form, upload documentation, and view compliance status.
- Log into your my.WellnessPortal account.
- Select “Medical Clearances.”
- Follow instructions for meeting the immunization requirement.
The information provided will be automatically added to your electronic health record and will be available for you to download when you need it in the future.
Students can book their initial counseling by calling 773.834.WELL (773.834.9355) during business hours, 8:30 am–5:00 pm, Monday to Friday.
For virtual visits, students can check in to their appointments and connect to Zoom for their virtual counseling or psychiatry sessions through the my.WellnessPortal. Students will also receive appointment reminders from the portal and can communicate directly with their providers via secure messaging.
Documents requiring student attention or completion will be listed in the “Medical Clearances” or “Forms” sections of the portal. Students may also need to complete a survey shortly before their appointment; if so, it will be available to complete in the “Survey Forms” section.

Additionally, students need to upload a copy of their insurance card prior to their appointment in the “Insurance Card” section.
Students have access to referrals, handouts, lab results, and other medical records from within the portal. Students can also communicate directly with their providers via secure messaging.
Please note that not all appointments can be scheduled online. If you do not see the type of appointment you need as an option, or do not find a suitable time, please call UChicago Student Wellness and speak with a Wellness Coordinator.
The portal’s secure messaging feature provides students with a HIPAA-compliant means of communicating with providers that will protect your privacy. To message a counselor, psychiatrist, or provider, you must have seen that staff member before you can initiate a secure message. Please do not send secure messages for urgent matters.
At times, a provider or staff member may send you a secure message. If this happens, you will receive an automated email notification to your uchicago.edu address informing you that you have a new secure message. To view and respond to it:
- Log in to your my.WellnessPortal account.
- Select “Access Message Center” then “Read” to view the full message.
- To reply, click the “Reply” button, which can be found below the message.
