The Student Health Center (SHC) is here for you anytime — but we’re adapting our services for everyone’s safety. Your health and wellbeing is still our top priority.
Do not come directly to SHC if you have fever, cough, shortness of breath and/or trouble breathing – or if you think you’ve had contact with someone who has COVID-19. We need to take proper precautions to ensure everyone's safety. Call the SHC at (212) 443-1000 and ask to speak with a nurse.
The SHC does not offer COVID-19 testing.
The SHC does not provide work or travel clearance letters for COVID-19.
You can now schedule a Virtual Care appointment to visit with an SHC provider via Zoom. Virtual Care appointments are available with Primary Care and Women's Health providers. Virtual Care is appropriate for a variety of conditions, including anyone with fever, cough, shortness of breath and/or trouble breathing (who should not visit the SHC in-person), and anyone with a minor medical concern that may not require an in-person exam.
If you need to be seen urgently for a non-emergency illness, call the SHC at (212) 443-1000. We will determine if an SHC provider can visit with you in a same-day Virtual Care appointment or if you should visit Urgent Care in-person (726 Broadway, 3rd Floor) or another nearby urgent care facility. Since COVID-19 continues to spread, it is not advisable to visit a medical facility unless absolutely necessary.
Please do not come directly to SHC if you have fever, cough, shortness of breath and/or trouble breathing – or if you think you’ve had contact with someone who has COVID-19. We need to take proper precautions to ensure everyone's safety. Call the SHC at (212) 443-1000 and ask to speak with a nurse.
We’re focusing on meeting your most pressing needs and temporarily scaling back on some of our other services. If you have an upcoming appointment that will be affected, the SHC will reach out to you to make alternate arrangements.
The following services are temporarily limited or suspended. If you need assistance, please call (212) 443-1000.
We request that you postpone visits for routine check-ups and medical clearances at this time. Since COVID-19 continues to spread, it is not advisable to visit a medical facility unless absolutely necessary.
If you have a pressing request, please call the SHC at (212) 443-1000 and ask to speak with a nurse. We will review your needs and create a plan to address them.
We are not recommending visits for routine vaccines at this point, to minimize travel and potential exposure. It is not advisable to visit a medical facility at this time unless absolutely necessary. If you are underway with a series, you will not need to re-start it if you have a longer interval between vaccines. You can resume the series once full services can be restored.
You can work with a counselor from Counseling and Wellness Services even while in-person classes are suspended. If you have an upcoming appointment you will be contacted to make arrangements to speak to your counselor remotely (via Zoom or phone). If you have any questions, please contact CWS at (212) 998-4780. All students who need counseling services will be seen.
We’re offering many counseling groups remotely via Zoom. For the most up-to-date schedule, please see our Group Counseling page. If you’re currently in group counseling, your group leader will reach out to you with information about time changes and instructions on joining remotely.
The following Wellness Workshops will run remotely on Zoom until the end of the Spring 2020 semester.
All students are welcome to join a Wellness Workshop! If you have any questions or concerns, please contact CWS at (212) 998-4780.

If you do not participate in the NYU sponsored student health insurance plans, i.e., you “waived” this coverage and are using your own or your parents’ insurance coverage, then you most likely remain covered but should contact your insurance carrier to verify the particular terms of your coverage.
If you participate in the NYU sponsored student health insurance plans, administered by Wellfleet Group, LLC (i.e., the Washington Square “Basic” and “Comprehensive” Plans and the Tandon School of Engineering “Tandon” Plan):
Given the unique situation that continues to evolve around the coronavirus, students with NYU-sponsored Student Health Insurance (Washington Square “Basic” and “Comprehensive Plans”) are no longer required to seek a referral from the NYU Student Health Center before accessing care in Manhattan. The referral exception will remain in place until further notice.
