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.
