Summer Health Reminders

As the semester winds down and summer approaches, here’s what you need to know about healthcare access. Be prepared for the summer by working with the Student Health Center now.

Graduating? Please Note: you will have access to the Student Health Center, including the pharmacy, until May 31, 2016. If you have NYU-sponsored Student Health Insurance, your policy will be in effect until August 20, 2016. Click here for information on post-NYU insurance options and transitioning your care.

Travel Advisory: If you are traveling to any Zika affected areas, please read the Zika virus health alert for up-to-date information.

Summer Hours of Operation: Click here for a complete listing of summer hours.

Emergencies: As always, in case of a life- or limb-threatening emergency, call 911 (or other local emergency services).

Urgent medical needs: Call the SHC main number, (212) 443-1000. A nurse will speak to you about your symptoms and recommend an appropriate course of action.

Urgent mental health needs: Call the Wellness Exchange hotline: (212) 443-9999. The hotline is available 24/7, and this will not change over the summer. Walk-in counseling will also continue to be available through Wellness Exchange.

If you are planning to travel away from NYU, avoid a last-minute rush by scheduling pre-summer follow up services NOW. This includes getting your lab results and refilling your prescriptions and/or stocking up on contact lenses.

If you are returning to class in the fall, your access to services won’t change during the summer. If you are leaving NYC for the summer, get follow-up care now for any services at SHC that cannot wait until you return in the fall. Make an appointment at the Student Health Center by clicking here or calling (212) 443-1000. Please do not wait until the last minute.

Using Student Health Insurance when the SHC is closed or when you are away from NYC
If you are enrolled in an NYU-sponsored Student Health Insurance plan and require non-emergency* medical attention while the SHC is closed, or if you are not in NYC, you may visit a healthcare provider without an SHC referral. Seeking services from providers in the MagnaCare or MultiPlan Networks will reduce your out-of-pocket expenses. You can locate a MagnaCare or MultiPlan provider at For plan benefits, please access or call Consolidated Health Plans, the insurance plan administrator, at (877) 373-1170.

*In case of a life- or limb-threatening emergency, call 911 (or other local emergency services). No SHC referral is required for emergency care.

Have a safe and healthy Summer!
