Student Health Services offers a range of services to support the health and well-being of our students. The highest priorities of the staff are to meet the acute health needs of the student population and to provide ongoing health education opportunities as an integral part of the Quinnipiac experience.
The Mount Carmel Campus Health and Wellness Center, located on Bobcat Way, is staffed by a registered nurse 24 hours a day, seven days a week, while students are in residence (excluding the summer term). A physician is available 30 hours a week during the same period.
The York Hill Campus Health and Wellness Center, located on the first floor of the Rocky Top Student Center, is staffed by a nurse and a physician assistant. The center is open eight hours a day to serve students living on the York Hill Campus. A third health and wellness center is planned for the North Haven Campus.
All students must submit, on forms provided by Quinnipiac, a complete history of immunization and the results of a pre-entrance physical examination. This examination must be administered by a licensed health care provider within one year prior to the start of classes. These forms serve as a basis for health counseling and decisions about physical activities in which students can engage.
Student Health Services are available only to students who complete the required forms and have proof of adequate immunization as required by the State of Connecticut Department of Health Services. Students who do not comply are not permitted to register, including pre-registration for the second semester.

Student Health Insurance
Quinnipiac has partnered with Gallagher Koster to offer a student-focused health insurance plan that complements the services provided on campus. Quinnipiac University believes that it is extremely important that students have insurance coverage while they pursue their studies. If a student does not have health insurance through his/her own or family plan to cover the medical costs of an unexpected illness or injury, his/her education could be interrupted or even terminated. To prevent this from happening to your son or daughter, health insurance is required for all full time, undergraduate and graduate students.
Students who choose to "enroll" in the plan will be covered for a full 12 months beginning Aug. 15, 2013, for a total cost of $1,370. The cost of this full-year policy will be added to the tuition bill. All students who choose to "waive" out of the plan must do so before June 15, 2013, to avoid the insurance charge appearing on their tuition invoice.
