Peter J. Fine Health Center
Student Health Services (SHS) provides an inclusive, welcoming, and caring environment where students can receive quality healthcare that supports their academic success. SHS administers compassionate, patient-centered healthcare to students in a confidential manner and collaborates with various campus departments to enhance the safety and wellbeing of the entire campus community.
It is recommended that students schedule an appointment to be seen in SHS. This allows better management of workflow and reduces patient wait times. Walk-in patients without appointments are seen on a first come, first serve basis and may result in increased wait times to see a healthcare provider.
Students should always bring their health insurance card when coming to SHS for treatment. This may be needed to order lab tests and prescriptions or make referrals to specialists.
Mon – Fri 8 am – 7 pm, Sat 10 am – 4 pm
TeleHealth: Fridays 12:30 – 4:30 pm
SHS is closed on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month from 11 am – 12 pm for staff meetings. Please contact DPS in case of emergency.
