A Healthy Campus
UC Riverside cares about its students’ and employees’ health and wellbeing. That’s why our Healthy Campus initiative was formed in 2016 — to help our students, faculty, and staff achieve greater school and work-life balance. Learn more about the group and how it’s making UCR a healthier place to live and learn.
Student Health Services
Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP)
All UCR students are automatically enrolled in the Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP). The cost for this program is included in our student fees and provides convenient, on-campus care; nationwide coverage; and vision and dental coverage at no extra cost. SHIP also meets the requirements of the Affordable Care Act and can be used even if a student’s family is participating in Covered CA or a home state exchange plan. Learn more about SHIP.
Established alongside the UC Riverside School of Medicine, UCR Health is bringing patient-centered primary care and specialty services to the communities of Inland Southern California. Medical offices are located throughout the region, offering comprehensive access to university-affiliated healthcare.
Our students’ safety is a top priority, and we have teams of people dedicated to their protection. From our campus police and community service officers to our Campus Safety Escort Service, UCR students can count on feeling safe and secure in the areas where they live and learn.
