The Office of University Health and Wellness Services maintains regular hours while the University is in session for the fall and spring semesters and is staffed by a Nurse Practitioner and a Registered nurse. A physician is available at specified hours during the week. Appropriate referrals are made as necessary to community physicians and hospitals. During the summer months, students can obtain care from local emergency rooms or urgent care centers, with any questions directed to Safety and Security at ext. 4999.
In these times of escalating health care costs, all students enrolled at Wilkes University are required to have health insurance coverage and to provide proof of that coverage.
