Q: Does the Student Health Center stay open over the summer?
A: Absolutely! We are here all summer to take care of your health care needs. In fact, we’re not so jam-packed over the summer since many students do leave campus, so it is a great time to take care of those routine visits you didn’t have time to get to during the school year: eye exams, dental cleanings, women’s annual exams (pap smears) or STI screenings. To schedule an appointment, just call our appointment desk at (614) 292-4321.
Our summer hours are 8-5 Monday through Friday throughout the building. Starting in the fall, we will return to our regular hours, which are 8-6 Monday through Thursday, 8-5 on Friday, and 9-1 on most Saturdays during the Fall and Spring Semesters. Our pharmacy stays open one hour beyond closing time.
Check with your health insurance company (including the OSU Student Health Insurance Plan) about benefits here at Student Health Services. We are now in-network providers for some area plans. If we are out-of-network with your plan, we are happy to bill them directly for you, but for us to do that effectively you need to register your insurance with us. You can call (614-292-0113) or visit our Patient Relations Department on the 3rd floor of the Wilce Student Health Center for help with that.
- Coming to campus for Orientation, and wanting some vaccines before you return in August?
- Entering Health Professional Student needing required testing or immunizations?
You can get these items during the summer as well.
Enjoy your summer!
