Health Center

Scheduling Appointments

To provide extra care and precaution to the patient and the provider, please call the Health Center to schedule an appointment at 757.352.4953.

A nurse practitioner is available to all on-campus students, including those residing in campus housing and commuters (both undergraduate and graduate) who require 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. A portion of the University Services Fees for on-campus students grants students the ability to visit the Health Center as often as necessary. Students can access physician partners nearby on Providence Road at Sentara Family Medicine Physicians if additional care is needed. Please note: allergy shots cannot be administered on campus.

Visit The Health Center, virtually or in-person, if you have any of the following symptoms:

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

The Health Center is open from 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday-Friday. The last appointment time for new patients is 4:30 p.m. The last appointment time for current patients requiring a follow-up visit is 4:45 p.m. The center is closed when the university is closed for various holidays, including Christmas break when the university shuts down during emergency closures due to weather or other unexpected events.

Students and employees who may need to be tested for COVID-19 during the academic year must contact the University Health Center in advance to schedule an appointment and receive further instructions. Please call 757.352.4953 to schedule an appointment with the nurse practitioner. The Health Center’s operating hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday and is located at the Regent Commons residence halls.
