Drexel is committed to maintaining the health and safety of all our students. Whether you need allergy shots, treatment for a sports injury, or more — Drexel's Student Health Center exists to provide you with a range of health services in a confidential environment staffed by doctors and nurse practitioners. And the Office of Health Insurance and Immunizations provides important information regarding compliance with Drexel University's health insurance and immunization policies in order to ensure the health and well-being of all members of the Drexel community using the American College Health Association and the Centers for Disease Control guidelines.
Disability Resources empowers individuals who have documented disabilities by working together to proactively provide reasonable accommodations. This office can also facilitate temporary adjustments for all individuals with short-term impairments such as those due to accident, injury, or illness. If you are a student with a disability, you are encouraged to request reasonable accommodations as soon as you can.
Overall health services, as well as alcohol- and other drug-related educational resources, are provided to all members of the Drexel community throughout the year. Plus, the Drexel Autism Support Program (DASP) provides robust support for Drexel's neurodiverse students and aims to ensure that DASP participants take advantage of University life, develop the academic and social skills needed to pursue career opportunities, and lead full and enriched lives.
