Coronavirus header

As the situation around COVID-19 continues to impact our NYU community, we want to assure you that the Student Health Center is still here for you — but we’ve adapted our services.

In the interest of protecting the NYU community, the Student Health Center (SHC) is continuously monitoring developments around COVID-19 and adjusting our recommendations accordingly. Your health and well-being is our top priority.

We are in direct contact with state and local health departments and are closely following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization, and the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.


Our Services

Most services are now offered virtually! To minimize the spread of the coronavirus and protect students and providers, all in-person walk-in/drop-in services are closed.

Virtual Care

You can now schedule a Virtual Care appointment to visit with an SHC provider via Zoom. Virtual Care is appropriate for a variety of conditions.


Virtual Counseling & Wellness Services

Counseling and Wellness Services are now available virtually (via Zoom or phone). If you need assistance or need to speak with a counselor, call us at (212) 443-9999.
