Health Center

A nurse practitioner is available to all on-campus students, inclusive of those residing in campus housing as well as commuters (both undergraduate and graduate), who are in need of minor healthcare services on campus. The nurse practitioner can provide a higher level of care than a nurse and has the authority to write prescriptions. On-campus students pay a $45 Health Center fee every semester (fall/spring/summer) which grants them the ability to visit the Health Center as many times as necessary. If additional care is needed, students have access to physician partners nearby on Providence Road at Sentara Family Medicine Physicians Please note: allergy shots cannot be administered on campus.

Visit the Health Center if you have any of the following symptoms:

  • Cold & Flu
  • Fever
  • Ear Infection
  • Sinus Infection
  • Cough
  • Other Minor Injuries/Illnesses
