Health Unit

Providing medical care to registered students of GMIT in a confidential and professional manner

Galway Campus

The Student Health Unit provides an acute illness/emergency service. The Student Health Unit is not currently available for walk-ins. Please phone the Student Health Unit to speak to a nurse who will provide an initial assessment and make a Doctor's appointment for you, if necessary.

A valid GMIT/ATU Student ID Card is required when attending the Student Health Unit.

If you have a pre-existing medical condition that may affect your studies in college, you are advised to register with the Student Health Unit on commencement in ATU.

If you have an on-going medical condition, you should also continue to attend your own doctor.

If you have a medical card, you are advised to continue to attend the GP you are registered with, or register with a local GP practice while you are attending college. The Student Health Unit does not operate as a medical card practice.

For medical emergencies, please call: 087 9971574.

Have you wondered about the real effect of drinking alcohol on you, and on others? Have you considered how much money you might spend on alcohol in a year?

To help students get ready for the new academic year, ATU is promoting The Drinks Meter which has been developed by the Western Region Drugs & Alcohol Task Force..  

The Drinks Meter is an anonymous, confidential, cross-platform, digital application designed to inform you about your drinking behaviour and how it affects your health and wellbeing.
