About McKinley Health Center

McKinley Health Center serves the students at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The Health Service Fee, which is paid as part of your enrollment, provides the funds to prepay many of your health care needs. Some of the services provided by McKinley include:


Emergency care

McKinley can provide most of your non-emergency health care. Emergency care is provided by area hospitals. If you have an emergency, call 911. Carle Foundation Hospital or OSF HealthCare Heart of Mary Medical Center have emergency departments and ambulance service. 


Primary Care Providers

As a UIUC Student, you are automatically assigned a Primary Care Provider at McKinley when you enroll.  The goal is for you to see the same McKinley provider while you are at the University.  Having a consistent provider at McKinley, who is familiar with you and your needs, increases the quality of care you receive.  You can change providers if you want, but you are a McKinley patient and all of our providers are here to keep you well to excel!


Visiting McKinley

Using McKinley couldn't be easier. If you're sick and think you need to visit McKinley, in most cases you'll start by contacting Dial-A-Nurse at 217-333-2700. This health care professional will answer many of your questions and suggest a course of action including scheduling an appointment if indicated. You can also schedule an appointment yourself on-line or by phone

McKinley's convenient location is easily accessible to most of the Illinois Campus. We're located at 1109 S. Lincoln Ave. on the south-eastern side of campus. There is metered parking but check the parking tips section before your visit.

When you arrive at McKinley and have an appointment, use the convenient Self Check-in Stations to let us know you're here.

We look forward to meeting your health and wellness needs.
