How do I know which student health center I should access for services after July 1?
Students are assigned to a health center as designated by their school or program. Should students need care at a Rutgers student health services center other than their designated site, they should contact that health center for information on availability of services, hours of operation, and fees assessed. Students should keep in mind that services and fees may vary across health centers.
