Important Pharmacy Announcement

VCU Student Health is excited to announce our new partnership with VCU Health System (VCUHS) Pharmacy starting May 2024.  This collaboration aims to enhance the quality and accessibility of pharmaceutical care to our students, ensuring continuity of care. 

As a result, our own VCU Student Health Pharmacy will be closing permanently on May 24th, 2024.  Current prescription holders are advised to schedule appointments with Student Health providers for a seamless transition to VCUHS Pharmacy or their pharmacy of choice.  Queries can be directed to 804-828-8828.

Student Health FAQs

University Student Health Services is a nationally accredited health care provider that offers primary care services to VCU students. Two clinics are located on the Monroe Park & MCV campuses. APPOINTMENTS ARE REQUIRED & must be scheduled BY PHONE. Both telehealth and in-person appointments are available.

Who is eligible to use Student Health?  Students who have paid the semester health fee may be seen at Student Health. No health fee is required to use the Student Health Pharmacy or Immunization Services

What if a student is 17 years or younger?  Students under 18 will need to have a parent or legal guardian complete the Parental Consent Form prior to receiving medical care at USHS.

What does the health fee cover?  There are no co-pays for office visits once the health fee is billed each semester. The health fee does NOT cover prescriptions, referrals, some laboratory services, imaging tests, emergency room visits, etc.  

What about health insurance?  Student Health does not accept health insurance, so any additional clinic fees are self-pay. However, health insurance is strongly recommended to cover medical costs not included in the health fee. If you are uninsured, consider health insurance options through Medicaid or the Marketplace.

What payment forms are accepted at Student Health?  Student Health is cashless. Only major credit cards, debit cards, Rambucks, Apple Pay, & Samsung Pay are accepted.

  • A digital thermometer
  • Pain relievers (acetaminophen/Tylenol, ibuprofen/Advil, naproxen/Aleve)
  • Allergy pills (Benadryl, Zyrtec, Claritin, or Allegra)
  • Cough & cold medications
