Health and welfare

The choices you need to make where healthcare is concerned, may well be in your own hands when you are a student. Below a few handy links and tips. 

HU Clinics 

You can make an appointment at the HU Clinics (Dutch only) to receive advice and treatment, completely free of charge on dental care, eye care, skin care and speech therapy. The clinics are run by students who are supervised by professionals. The quality of treatment is guaranteed, and the students apply the latest methods, in accordance with the most recent insights. You also contribute to the education of future health care professionals at the same time. 

Student Care Guide 

The Student Care Guide may be helpful when trying to find answers to healthcare questions and will guide you through the available healthcare options. For additional information please check out the Student Care Guide. VIDIUS, a Study Association located in Utrecht also added a lot of information on healthcare for students on their site.  

Healthcare Providers 

You can find GPs, dentists and pharmacists in your area on the Zorgkaart Nederland  (website Dutch only) (Healthcare Guide The Netherlands). 

Find more information about the healthcare and healthcare providers in the Netherlands at this website for internationals.

Walk with Me!

You’ll never walk alone. Especially in these uncertain times, it can be nice to go for a walk and chat with someone. That is why we offer you a free of charge opportunity to get in touch with other HU students while going for a walk. At you can meet with other students (face-to-face) and arrange to go for a walk. We will help you exchange contact information so you can set a place and time. Get to know new people while getting some fresh air and discover new places in Utrecht at the same time!
