The Human Resources Office coordinates community blood drives throughout the academic year. The drives are generally held in the Student Center and everyone is welcome to participate.

Appointments to give blood may be made by calling Human Resources at (516) 463-6859 or by emailing HumanResources@hofstra.edu. There is provision for walk-in donors as well.

For information regarding medical eligibility to donate blood, including ineligibility because of travel outside of the United States, please call the LI Blood Services at (800) 688-0900.

  • Must have valid photo or signature ID.
  • Minimum weight 110 lbs.
  • Must be between 16-75 years of age (16 year olds must have parental consent available at www.nybloodcenter.org).

DONATIONS ARE URGENTLY NEEDED. Close to 2,000 men, women, and children in our community, including cancer, transplant, and surgery patients, trauma victims, newborn babies, and many others need blood transfusions every day. Since blood only lasts 42 days, area hospitals are in real need. You can change that. One pint of donated blood is separated into components that can save several lives. Please consider making a donation and giving the gift of life. Thank you.

For more information, or to schedule an appointment, call Human Resources at (516) 463-6859 or email HumanResources@hofstra.edu; walk-ins are also welcome!
