Health Alert: Norovirus

VCU has NOT experienced an unusual increase in students with stomach illnesses. However, several Virginia universities have reported cases of Norovirus (please place hyperlink for Norovirus at www.cdc.gov/norovirus/about/overview.html). This virus causes vomiting and diarrhea and is very contagious. Keep yourself healthy by doing the following:

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water, especially before eating or preparing food.
  • Wash fruits and vegetables well.
  • If you have symptoms of Norovirus:
    • Stay home for a minimum of 24 hours after symptoms resolve to avoid spreading your infection to others. If you are a food handler or work in childcare, you should not return to work until 48 hours after symptoms resolve.
    • Drink plenty of fluids to avoid dehydration. Click here for more info.
    • Call Student Health if you cannot keep down liquids.
Free Flu Vaccine Available to All VCU Students

Student Health encourages all students to receive the flu vaccine, especially students at high risk for flu complications, such as those with asthma, diabetes, and other chronic health problems.

Students may receive the flu shot or FluMist during immunization hours or immediately following a scheduled medical appointment.

Who can use Student Health?

All students enrolled in classes for the fall semester can receive services at Student Health. Appointments can be scheduled by phone or online.

Do I need health insurance in order to use student health?

No. Student Health does not accept health insurance. Visits for full-time students are covered by the health fee that is automatically billed along with their tuition each semester. Part-time students will be billed a one-time health fee if they present to Student Health for services.

Students need to be aware that the health fee does NOT cover the cost of complete physicals, medications, certain labs, xrays, referrals, etc. Therefore, we strongly encourage students to purchase individual health insurance to cover their health care needs. If you do not already have health insurance, consider purchasing the university-sponsored health insurance through Aetna or visit the Health Insurance Exchange.

Where is Student Health?

We have two locations for your convenience:
The clinic at Monroe Park is located in the Sports Medicine Building, 2nd Fl, next to the Seigel Center at 1300 W. Broad St. Free parking spaces designated for Student Health are located behind the building.
The clinic at MCV is located in the VMI Building, 3rd Fl, at 1000 E. Marshall St.

What are the hours?

Student Health is open Monday through Friday. Clinic is closed after hours and on weekends and holidays. If an urgent medical problem arises when clinic is closed, students may consult the after-hours provider on-call or seek care at a local urgent care or emergency services facility.


Student Health is cashless

Only major credit cards, debit cards, and Rambucks are accepted as payment methods.


Take-care-of-yourself checklist

It's a good idea to have a few self-care items in your dorm room for minor illnesses. Consider keeping a small supply of the following items (which are available at low prices through the Student Health Pharmacy):

  • Antibiotic ointment
  • Bandaids
  • A digital thermometer
  • Pain relievers, like ibuprofen (Advil) and acetaminophen (Tylenol)
  • Benadryl for allergic reactions
  • Cough and cold medications

The Well

The Wellness Resource Center empowers all students to move toward optimal health by finding a balance for all aspects of wellness.

Our one-on-one consultations and presentations extend to topics such as alcohol and other drugs, smoking cessation, nutrition, disordered eating/body image, rape, sexual assault and domestic violence, stress management, and sexual health.

We also offer an array of volunteer opportunities and ways to get involved around campus.

VCU students who have a documented disability and require special accommodations can contact Disability Support Services. Health Science students should contact the Division for Academic Success for assistance.
