What is Direct2U?
Have your prescriptions delivered to the U-Desk for pick-up at your convenience. In most cases, you’ll receive better coverage than you would through a local pharmacist (receive up to 100% coverage on eligible drugs if you are enrolled in the Students’ Union Health Plan). Students using alternate coverage will benefit from lower dispensing fees and ingredient costs.
To place an order: Have your doctor write your phone number on the prescription and fax directly to 1.877.835.8329.
