Student Health Services

The mission of Student Health Services is to promote wellness by providing health information that will help and empower students to maximize their achievements academically at the Graduate Center, and throughout their lives.

Student Health Services provides health and wellness education to students at the Graduate Center via online resources, presentations, workshops, health screening events and the yearly comprehensive Wellness Festival, held during the spring. Health Services also collects and maintains student immunization records.

Although Health Services does not offer direct clinical patient care, we are able to offer guidance and referrals to assist students in obtaining routine or urgent healthcare services from outside providers.

The Wellness Center is open for in-person hours Tuesday-Thursday from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

The center operates remotely on Fridays from 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. to answer questions via our Virtual Front Desk:

If you have a medical emergency

If you are in the Graduate Center, call Security at x7777 immediately. They can get help to you the fastest.

For an emergency outside of The Graduate Center, we recommend that you first call 911, which can provide the necessary service to help you and, if indicated, transport you to an emergency room. 
 
If you determine that you can safely seek emergency care on your own, there are numerous emergency services located in major medical facilities throughout New York City.
