HELSESTASJON - STUDENT CLINIC

Students up to the age of 25 have access to a public clinic for youth and students. The offer is to give students easy access to information, guidance and counselling.

The clinic for youth has a special focus upon the body and sexual health. You can have a casual conversation with a nurse or a doctor about sexuality and contraception, take a chlamydia test, obtain free condoms and prescriptions of other contraceptives, and help with other referrals in healthcare.

The clinic is open Tuesday and Thursday from 2pm – 4pm. The clinic lies on the second floor of the town hall in Kongens Gate.

The clinic for students’ service is free to use.

COVERAGE FOR HEALTH SERVICES
