Student Health Center

The Student Health Center is located at 1770 Elm St, near the IM field. It is staffed by a nurse practitioner and registered nurses throughout the day. Physician coverage is provided by a group of family practice physicians who are on site during the school year (August 20 - May 10) from 3:00pm-4:45pm Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, and are on call at all times.

Eligibility to be treated in the Student Health Center is determined by payment of the Health Center Fee.  The type of insurance carried by the student is NOT a determining factor during the school year. 

In the summer, students enrolled in class and paying the Health Center Fee are eligible to be seen during that session.  Students who are on the Student Health Insurance Plan and not enrolled in class may be seen at the Health Center; however there is a $20 charge per visit.  Students who are not on SHIP and not enrolled in class are not eligible to be seen at the Health Center. 

Student Health Center hours:  8:00 am to 12 noon and 1:00 pm to 4:45 pm, Monday through Friday.   Appointments are recommended.  Walk-ins will be accomodated as time allows.  Please call 303-273-3381.
