Student Health Services
For non-emergency situations we recommend students visit Student Health Services first before visiting an off-campus medical facility.
There are multiple hospitals on Long Island that students can visit if they are not feeling well. Transport to and from local hospitals, as well as any costs associated with the visit is the responsibility of the patient.
