Health and Wellness Center
The Shafer Health and Wellness Center is located at 219 N. Sprague Avenue across the street from Fleck Dining Hall and between Sprague Hall and the Kirby Center for Creative Arts. It is open Monday through Thursday from 7:45 a.m.-9:30 p.m. and Fridays from 7:45 a.m.-6 p.m. A registered nurse is always available on call during after-hours and on weekends. Our wellness center houses our nursing and counseling departments, as well as five student bedrooms and one staff bedroom. Through our partnership with Pediatric Associates of Kingston, we have the ability to do same-day sick appointments in office, as well as telehealth appointments through our telemedicine cart in our exam area. This reduces the need for students to travel off campus for appointments. We also have accounts with a local pharmacy where we pick up prescriptions for boarding students if necessary.
Medical forms must be updated yearly and should be updated if there are any significant changes to a student’s health history or insurance information to ensure optimal care while at school. All forms and requirements can be accessed and uploaded through our online portal.
