Student Health Insurance Requirement

All graduate students enrolled in full-time Danforth campus programs at Washington University in St. Louis are required to have health insurance. Domestic students registered as full-time and all International students are automatically enrolled in the United Healthcare (UHC) Student Resources plan through the university. The plan goes into effect on August 1 and ends July 31.  Students are eligible to purchase additional coverage for dependents. Find more information on student health insurance and health insurance waivers through the Habif Health & Wellness Center’s website.

Graduate Student Housing Resources

Washington University does not have specific housing for graduate students; however, we do have University-owned housing and an apartment referral service. The Metropolitan St. Louis Equal Housing Opportunity Council provides a list of tenant rights, which you should be familiar with if you will be renting an apartment. If you decide to rent an apartment or other housing off-campus, it is strongly recommended that you purchase renter’s insurance. Renter’s insurance covers your personal property in case of fire, damage or theft. You can find an insurance agent by searching online.
