HPU has a registered nurse available to assist currently enrolled students for consultation on minor ailments and first aid at no cost to students. Prescription medicine and injections may be given on orders of a physician, but students must pay for all medicine and physician charges. If a student does not have a local physician, the nurse will help make arrangements when requested. In the event of an emergency, students will be sent to Brownwood Regional Medical Center.
The nurse’s office is located in Health Services outside Jennings Hall (from Muse Plaza, it’s on the right).
Students may stop by, call, or email the office to schedule an appointment.

Many college students are able to continue health insurance coverage under their parents’ health plan. Students should always verify this information before beginning college and also determine how long they will be eligible for coverage under their parents’ plan. For students needing to investigate individual health insurance options, feel free to stop by the Office of Student Life for informational brochures or visit Texas Health Options online.
