Health Services

**Announcement for Fall 2019: The Wellness Center Student Health Services, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (NYCDOHMH) recommend that everyone 6 months and older should get a flu vaccine as soon as vaccine is available in the fall. Students are urged to obtain the flu vaccine as early as possible. Please see here for more info, or reference this LIST for a vareity of resources.**

The focus of the Wellness Center’s Student Health Service has changed from prior years and is now devoted exclusively to serving as a resource for health information and education.

The Graduate Center’s Wellness Center no longer offers direct clinical patient care. Students who are ill or require routine health care will need to seek services outside the Graduate Center. We can, however, offer information and referrals to assist you in finding the health care you need.

Student Health Services provides health and wellness education, referral and health information throughout the year, including presentations, workshops, health screening events and the yearly comprehensive Wellness Festival, held during the spring.  

Further information is available on this website, as well as by calling or visiting the Wellness Center office. In addition, please refer to our accounts on Facebook ( and Twitter (

Please note that this website and the information it contains are currently under revision; for any questions about its content, please contact or visit our office at 212-817-7020, 365 Fifth Ave., Rm. 6422.

The mission of the Student Health Service is to promote wellness by providing health information that will help and empower students to maximize their achievements academically at the Graduate Center, and throughout their lives.
