Penn State Abington Health & Wellness Center provides basic health care, counseling and psychological services and wellness programs throughout the year. These free on-campus services are covered by student tuition.
Students requiring medical care are referred to an off-campus consulting physician affiliated with Abington Memorial Hospital.
The University also offers individual accident and health insurance at a minimal rate.
All student health records are confidential. No information contained in a health record may be released without the written consent of a student.
It is the responsibility of a student with a diagnosis such as diabetes, heart disease or epilepsy to inform professors as necessary to protect the student’s well-being or academic advancement.
New Immunization Submission Process
Immunizations offer safe and effective protection from vaccine-preventable diseases. The United States is experiencing re-emergence of these diseases, in part due to factors such as non-immunized and under-immunized persons and global travel. University Health Services of the Pennsylvania State University strongly supports the use of vaccines to protect the health of our individual students and our campus community.
