The Mico University College places emphasis on facilities necessary for the optimum health and well being of all students by providing basic health care as needed. In serious cases of illness and instances where it is considered necessary, students will be referred to the relevant professionals or to public health facilities. Each student is expected to subscribe to the health insurance programme provided by the institution.


There is a registered nurse on duty at the Health Centre from Monday – Friday, 8:00 am – 8:00 pm and on Saturdays from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm. At the Errol Miller Hall, located at Arnold Road, a registered nurse is on duty from 8 pm – 8 am the following day. A medical doctor visits the Health Centre once each week. Appointments to see the doctor are made through the nurse on duty.

Illness during the semester

Students who are ill and absent from classes for more than one day must report to the nurse upon resumption. Leave of absence from classes for more than three (3) days will require the student to report to the nurse accompanied with a doctor's certificate, which must also be presented to the lecturers whose classes were missed. A student is required to apply to the Dean of the faculty for formal leave of absence, should it be necessary for him/her to be absent for a period of more than two weeks.

Requests for Leave of Absence covering a period of over one (1) month, for any reason whatever, must be made to the Dean in writing. The Dean will then forward such requests to the Academic Board with the Faculty's recommendation. Read More
