Student Health Center Pharmacy

The Student Health Center Pharmacy is a privately owned community pharmacy located on the first floor of the Student Health Services Building, just steps beyond the entrance.

It is the only full-service retail pharmacy located on the University of Tennessee campus and specializes in meeting the needs of all UT students, faculty, and staff.

  • Accepts prescriptions from the SHC providers, off-campus providers, and your Primary Care provider from home.
  • Accepts most prescription insurance plans, and you can expect to pay the same co-pay as you usually pay at any other pharmacy.
  • Offers a wide array of Over-the-Counter (OTC) products for Cough & Cold, seasonal allergies, GI issues, personal and feminine hygiene, and many other common ailments.
  • Provides a robust vaccination program administered within the pharmacy, carrying vaccines that the University requires for admission, seasonal Influenza, COVID-19, and many more.

As requested by a patient, medications electronically prescribed by a SHC healthcare provider can be sent to the SHC Pharmacy or any other in-state pharmacy accepting electronic prescriptions.
