Student Insurance

Princeton University requires health insurance coverage for all enrolled undergraduate and graduate students. If you are an undergraduate student, you can purchase insurance through the Princeton University Student Health Plan (SHP), or maintain insurance through a private plan (e.g., parent’s or spouse’s insurance). Graduate students are automatically enrolled in the SHP.

Regardless of provider, insurance must cover routine care, off-campus specialty care, and hospitalization not provided at UHS. Review your options for assistance in paying for medical care received outside of UHS.

We offer the following plans through the University:
