We rant about mental and physical wellness throughout the school year, but just because the school year’s over for most of you doesn’t mean you can stop taking care of your health. Luckily, the resources that are available to you on campus during the Fall and Winter Semesters are still there for you over the summer! Here’s what you need to know about making the most of your student health coverage:


Did you know that your student health coverage lasts throughout the summer? If you attended school full-time in the Winter Semester, your SAMRU Health & Dental Benefits Plan is in effect through August 31. If you have questions about your coverage, the Student Benefits Plan office (room Z001) will be open Monday to Friday, 9:00am – 4:00pm, until June 30. The office will reopen in August (exact date TBC).
