Health and safety

MUPD entrance

Your health and safety are important at MU. Both the MU and Columbia police departments are here to help you should a problem arise, and Columbia is home to several excellent hospitals and health care centers.

If you or someone you know is in immediate danger, dial 911 and tell the operator what kind of emergency you have.

Health insurance is required for most international students and scholars. The International Center provides basic information about health insurance in the U.S., as well as specific regulations for international students and J-1 scholars.
