Student health facilities will move to Westlawn

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- The University of Iowa Student Health Service will move to its new location in the renovated Westlawn building beginning Saturday, Aug. 1. The move will be completed on Aug. 3 and 4, and student health will reopen on Wednesday, Aug. 5, according to Mary Khowassah, M.D., director of the Student Health Service.

"We are eager to get settled into our new home," Khowassah said. "The Westlawn facility will provide UI students with a new and expanded modern clinic. It will be more efficient, more comfortable and fully accessible with an elevator that serves both floors of the unit. We hope students will find the clinic to be warm and inviting."

Public parking will be available to students driving to the clinic, and a van will be available for students who need transportation to the UI Hospitals and Clinics. Regular office hours, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays and 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, will resume Aug. 5.
