Changes to our medical services

As of the Fall 2020 semester, the Wellness Center’s front door will be locked during business hours to help control the flow of students and staff through the building. Upon your arrival, please ring the intercom to the right of the front door for assistance. Your temperature will be taken at the door when you arrive.

The Wellness Center will be open Monday through Friday from 9:00am to 5:00pm. Services will be available by appointment only.  Walk-ins will not be accepted. Call 610 409 3100 or email wellness@ursinus.edu to make an appointment at the Wellness Center.

When appropriate, telehealth appointments will be offered.

Students who call with any of the following list of symptoms will undergo additional screening and triage.
