VCU Student Health is thrilled to announce our collaboration with VCU Health System (VCUHS) Pharmacy starting May 2024.  This partnership marks an exciting new chapter in our commitment to providing comprehensive healthcare services to our students.  By joining forces with VCU Pharmacy, Student Health aims to enhance the quality and accessibility of pharmaceutical care to patients.

As a result, our own VCU Student Health Pharmacy will be closing permanently on May 24, 2024.  We kindly ask current prescription holders to schedule appointments with their Student Health provider to arrange a smooth transfer of prescriptions.  Our team will work diligently to ensure a seamless transition to VCUHS Pharmacy or the patient's pharmacy of choice.  Please direct any queries to 804-828-8828.

Location and Hours

Pharmacy services are available to all Student Health patients.  Only prescriptions written by a Student Health provider can be filled at the Student Health Pharmacy.

The Monroe Park Campus clinic houses an on-site pharmacy staffed by a full-time Pharmacist, a part-time Pharmacist, and two full-time Certified Pharmacy Technicians.

  • Pharmacy hours: 
    • Mon/Wed/Fri: 10am - 2pm
    • Tues/Thurs: 8am - 12pm, 1pm - 4:30pm
  • A 24-hour phone-in refill line is available at 804-828-7734.
  • Refills can also be requested using the mobileRx Pharmacy app or by clicking on this Express Refills link.

The VCU Medical Center Campus clinic does not offer a full on-site pharmacy, but it does offer over-the-counter medications for purchase to all VCU students.  Students on the VCU Medical Center Campus have the option of using the Student Health Pharmacy to fill prescription medications by:

  • Going directly to the pharmacy at the Monroe Park Campus clinic to pick up medications OR
  • Using a free courier service that delivers medications to the VCU Medical Center clinic once daily.
Payment Methods

Students are responsible for the cost of all medications dispensed.  Prices vary and are subject to change.  For specific questions regarding pricing, contact the pharmacy at 804-828-7734. 

  • Student Health only accepts major credit cards, debit cards, Rambucks, Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Samsung Pay as methods of payment.
  • Insurance cards are not accepted; however, the cost of many prescriptions through Student Health is less than what is charged at retail pharmacies.  Students who use the Student Health Pharmacy may submit receipts to their insurance providers for reimbursement as applicable.
Prescription Medications

Prescription medications are available on-site at the Student Health Pharmacy located in the Monroe Park Campus clinic.  However, students also have the option of filling their prescriptions at an outside pharmacy of their choice.

If patients choose to fill prescription medications at the Student Health Pharmacy, only prescriptions written by a Student Health provider can be dispensed at our pharmacy.  Prescriptions written by outside providers can be rewritten by a Student Health provider during a scheduled appointment.

Prescription Transfers To and From Outside Pharmacies

To transfer a prescription TO the Student Health Pharmacy, the student may give our pharmacy staff the outside pharmacy’s information to obtain the transfer, as long as the prescription was originally written by a Student Health provider.

To transfer a prescription FROM the Student Health Pharmacy to an outside pharmacy, the student should contact the outside pharmacy and give them their name, date of birth, prescription number or drug name, and the Student Health Pharmacy’s phone number (804-828-7734).  The outside pharmacy will then contact Student Health to have the prescription(s) transferred.

Over-the-Counter Medications

A wide variety of over-the-counter (OTC) medications are available for purchase at both campus clinics.  Prices are very reasonable in an effort to provide affordable services to our students.  Students do not have to be patients of Student Health in order to purchase OTC products from our clinics.

  • OTC medications include pain relievers, cough and cold medicines, gastrointestinal products, vitamins, and more.  
  • Miscellaneous items include thermometers, band-aids, tablet splitters, hand sanitizer, tampons, etc., as well as a selection of Burt's Bees products (refer to the link above).
  • The Student Health Pharmacy also offers Nicotine replacement products (see link above) at a low cost compared to most retailers.  Appointments can be scheduled with a Student Health provider to learn about other options for quitting tobacco use.
