Student Health Services

Being healthy is essential to the college experience. Student Health Services is a full-service primary care clinic provided for students who are ill or have other health concerns they want to address.

Fall 2020 Student Health Services/Testing Updates

Based on the current COVID-19 conditions in our region, Emory has made very difficult decisions that affect all members of our community but are necessary to create a safe learning environment while upholding our core principles. Please check the Oxford Forward pages for updated information about testing and student health.
