Student Health Center

The Student Health Center (SHC) staff extends a big welcome to all new and returning students!  There are continuous changes and challenges as we start the 2021-2022 school year.  Please see our COVID-19 tab for information regarding the submission of your vaccine information.  With healthy habits and using your SHC as a resource for your health needs, we can work together in keeping you and our campus community safe during this school year.  By following guidelines of the CDC (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/prevention.html) and UMW’s Return to Campus Plan (https://www.umw.edu/returntocampus/) we can make this happen together.

Although there will be NO WALK-IN APPOINTMENTS (to avoid overcrowding of the waiting area), the Health Center staff is available to address your health concerns on the SAME DAY or the next day you call.  All appointments need to be scheduled by contacting us at 540-654-1040.  The earlier you call, the more likely to get an appointment for the same day.  After SHC business hours, you may call 540-654-1040, and press 2 to speak with a Fonemed nurse for medical advice.  In the event of an emergency, call campus police at 540-654-4444.  If you can’t wait till the next day and need to see a medical provider after hours, please go to our COVID-19 page for local urgent care information.
