Visits to the Drexel Student Health Center are by appointment. Students who are sick are encouraged to contact us as early in the day as possible in order to receive same-day services. If you are experiencing an emergency, such as chest pain, shortness of breath, limb numbness, etc., proceed to the nearest emergency room — do not go to the Student Health Center.

After-Hours Urgent and Emergent Care

The Drexel Student Health Center provides students with a wide range of medical services, from injury and illness treatments to women's health and physical exams. Open Monday through Friday, the Student Health Center is focused on keeping you healthy so you can develop and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

To schedule an appointment, call 215.220.4700. For students that have questions or concerns outside of the normal business hours, the Health Center provides a 24-hour service line at 215.220.4700. Students that need immediate medical attention or services outside of these hours should call 911 to be taken to an emergency room or visit an urgent care facility.

Emergency Rooms

If you need immediate medical attention, and you feel it is an emergency, you should call 911 or go to an Emergency Room immediately. Emergency Rooms are medical treatment facilities specializing in emergency medicine and care. These rooms were designed to encompass the care of patients with traumatic injuries or serious signs and symptoms of disease. It is important to note that cost for care of non-emergencies treated in an Emergency Room may not be covered by your insurance.
