The Student Health Service at ATU Sligo is available to cater for the medical needs of students while they are away from home, and it is not possible to visit their own GP.

It offers both virtual and face to face consultations in a modern health suite, which is conveniently located on the campus grounds. The unit is staffed by a team of nurses and doctors who have extensive experience in student health issues and can offer specialist clinics to students, all completely free of charge! The Student Health Service  provides quality medical care to all registered students, using a holistic approach to practice.
