Student Health Services’ dedicated doctors, nurse practitioners and nurses provide accessible and affordable health care to all currently enrolled Mason students in a caring and confidential environment. Student Health has clinics at Fairfax, Arlington and Science and Technology campuses. A free nurse advice phone service (703-993-2831) is available when the clinics are closed.
Student Health Services’ providers offer care for a range of health needs, including infections, illness, minor injuries and burns, chronic health issues and sleep concerns. We also offer an on-campus lab, and diagnostic and preventive healthcare services. There is no charge to be seen by one of our providers. There are fees for lab tests, immunizations, medications, physicals and supplies.
August 27: Immunization Record Form Deadline
All newly admitted students, both freshman and transfer, graduate and undergraduate, must submit the Mason Immunization Record Form by the first day of classes for the semester. Students can easily upload the form to the secure patient portal. Students can also mail or drop off the form at the Immunization Office. Records that are late or incomplete after the deadline are subject to an account hold and late fee. Visit our immunization webpage at shs.gmu.edu/immunizations for more information.

Student Health Services offers flu shot clinics on each campus. Visit shs.gmu.edu/services/flushot for a list of all upcoming flu clinic dates.
How Student Health Services Can Help Your Student
We encourage students to make Student Health their first stop if they have a health concern, as there is no cost to be seen by a healthcare provider. Some services or procedures do have fees; we explain the cost of a service to students at their visit. Learn more at shs.gmu.edu/fees.
For a non-urgent need, students can call (703) 993-2831 or stop by the clinic to make an appointment. During fall and spring semesters, clinics are open in the evenings several nights a week and the Fairfax clinic is open on Saturday. The hours of operation and locations are available at shs.gmu.edu.
Students can walk-in to our clinics for acute or urgent illness or injuries. If a student is feeling unwell after hours, they can call our free nurse advice service (703-993-2831). The nurse will give advice and tell the student what they can do. More information is listed at shs.gmu.edu/locations/urgentcare.
