Temporary SMU Health Center relocation

June 5, 2015

As SMU notified the campus earlier this week, the SMU Health Center's Medical Services staff have temporarily relocated to the Loyd All-Sports Center, 5800 Ownby Drive, where medical services will be provided from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays in Room L007. Students can call 214-768-2141 for appointments, or walk in. For Counseling Services, please call 214-768-2277.

Because of the need for additional maintenance at the Health Center’s Daniel Avenue facility, the SMU Pharmacy will temporarily close at this location but is available to transfer students’ prescriptions to the pharmacy of their choice. We apologize for any inconvenience and will email the campus community when maintenance is completed.

In order to transfer prescriptions, students are asked to call the pharmacy at 214-768-2149 and leave a message with the following information:

  • Your name and student ID;
  • The prescription number if available or the name of the medication;
  • The pharmacy name and number where you want the prescription transferred;
  • A phone number in case the SMU Pharmacy needs to contact you.

Please allow 24 hours for transfers. Any transfer request left after 5 p.m. Friday through Sunday will be handled the following Monday. Prescriptions can be transferred back to the SMU Pharmacy when it reopens.

In case of emergency, students are asked to call 911 or SMU Police at 214-768-3333. Local hospitals and emergency resources are listed on the Health Center website. Students also may visit area clinics.

The office of Student Health Insurance will be available intermittently by email at studenthealthinsurance@smu.edu. For insurance benefit questions or for a temporary ID card, please contact the health insurance plan administration at 1-855-357-0242.

If you have questions about services or appointments, please call Assistant Director of Health Education Lisa Joyner at 214-768-2393 or email ljoyner@smu.edu.

Thank you for your understanding.
