UChicago Student Wellness offers comprehensive sexual health and wellness services, most notably sexually transmitted infection (STI) testing, Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) vaccine administration, and contraceptive and Pre Eexposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) prescriptions evaluations.
Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) Testing
A routine part of wellness care for sexually active people is testing for HIV and sexually transmitted infections (STIs). STI testing is recommended annually for everyone who is sexually active and every 3-6 months if your partners are changing.
Free STI testing is available at Student Wellness by following these four steps:
- Call 773.834.9355 or on the Wellness Portal to schedule a telephone or in-person "STI Clinic" appointment.
- Attend your appointment with a provider.
- Get tested at the Student Wellness Center lab.
- View your results in the myWellnessPortal - typically within 48 hours.
Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) Vaccine Administration
The Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) vaccination helps prevent certain cancers and genital warts.
The CDC recommends HPV vaccination for everyone through age 26 (if you're over 26, talk to your doctor about vaccination).
HPV immunization is a three-dose series of vaccinations for those over 15 (two doses if completed before age 15). HPV vaccination is FREE OF CHARGE at UChicago Student Wellness.
Call 773-834-9355 or log into the Wellness Portal to request an "Immunizations (Other, non-IL)" medical appointment.

Free Contraception and PrEP (HIV prevention) prescription evaluations are also available at Student Wellness. Call 773-834-9355 or log onto the Wellness Portal to schedule a "gynecology" or "health maintenance" medical appointment.
