How Student Health Services Can Help Your Student
Student Health doctors, nurse practitioners, and nurses have experience helping students with illness, sore throats, rashes, minor cuts & burns, infections, nutrition, sleep concerns, chronic health issues, and more.

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 of our services or procedures do have fees; we explain the cost of a service to students at their visit.

For a non-urgent need, a student can call 703-993-2831 or stop by the clinic to make an appointment that works with their schedule. Our clinics are open in the evenings several nights a week and our Fairfax clinic is open on Saturday. Our hours of operation and locations are available at

Student Health has walk-in space available for acute or urgent illness or injuries. If a student is feeling unwell after hours, s/he can be connected to our free 24/7 nurse advice line (703-993-2831). The nurse will give advice and tell the student what they can do.
