More Information

Immunization Hours

Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, Inc.

Student Health clinics will be closed Wednesday, May 23 for our annual staff retreat.  Student Health will re-open Thursday, May 24 at 8am.
  • If you have a medical emergency, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.
  • If you have a medical concern that cannot wait until clinic re-opens, call 804-828-8828 to page the provider on call.

Summer Hours Begin May 9

Both the Monroe Park Campus and VCU Medical Center clinics will be open Monday-Thursday, 8am-4:30pm and Friday, 10am-4:30pm from Monday, May 9 to Friday, August 19.  

The last day for graduating students to use Student Health is Friday, May 13.

Do I have to be in summer classes to use Student Health?  No.  Any student who is taking summer classes OR returning for classes in the fall can be seen at Student Health during the summer.

Is there a summer health fee?  Yes.  A one-time health fee of $60 will be billed to students when they come for a medical appointment.  This fee covers all visits from Monday, May 16 to Friday, August 12.  The health fee is required even if you are taking summer classes because it is not automatically billed with your summer tuition.

What are exceptions to the summer health fee?  Non-graduating students can be seen ONCE without a health fee from Monday, May 16 to Friday, May 20 if it is for a follow-up from the spring semester.  

In addition, no summer health fee will be billed to students who are ONLY:

  • Using the Student Health Pharmacy (without a medical visit).
  • Coming for vaccination services.  However, students will be responsible for the cost of vaccines and titers.
  • Returning for Depo shots prescribed by a Student Health provider.  Students returning for Depo shots prescribed by an outside provider will be billed a $10 injection fee without the summer health fee.

Health Alert: ZIKA VIRUS

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued a travel alert for countries where Zika virus is prevalent.  Check the CDC's travel notices regularly for updates as new countries are being added to this list.

  • The majority of people who are infected with the Zika virus do not become ill.  If symptoms develop, they are usually mild and include fever, rash, painful joints, and/or conjunctivitis.  
  • Zika infection has also been linked to a birth defect called microcephaly.  The CDC has issued recommendations advising pregnant women to avoid travel to areas where Zika virus is occurring.  
  • The Zika virus is primarily spread by infected mosquito bites to people. Avoiding mosquito bites is the best form of prevention for those traveling to an area where Zika virus is occurring.  
  • Zika infection can also occur through sexual transmission from a male partner.  Men who travel or live in areas where Zika infection is active should avoid intercourse or use condoms correctly & consistently with their pregnant sexual partners.  
Free HIV Tests

The Well will offer free HIV blood tests again in the fall.

Walgreens also offers free HIV testing at certain locations, including its store in Carytown (3520 Ellwood Ave, 804-342-8864).

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.

Students with Disabilities

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.‌
