COVID-19 Updates

For the health and safety of students and staff, Student Health Services is not accepting walk-in visits. Call us at 302-831-2226 to make an appointment. Appointments can be made for the dispensary if you are seeking a prescription refill. A nurse will help guide you in making an appointment and the safest way to enter the Student Health Services building. You will need to show proof of being cleared to access campus facilities on the day of entry through your completed daily health check.


We ask that you complete the telehealth consent form in advance, in case a telehealth visit with SHS is more appropriate than an in-person visit. This is found under Forms in the Secure Student Health Portal.

The current hours for Student Health are Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Aetna After Hours Nurse Medical Advice Line is available to all University of Delaware students after business hours by calling 800-681-3957. In an emergency, call 911 or utilize local emergency department services. For more information about coronavirus, visit udel.edu/coronavirus.


Influenza vaccine is available for students.  Please call 302-831-4150 for an appointment.


For emergencies on campus,
dial 911

Christiana Care


Student Health Services (SHS) is located in Laurel Hall, a freestanding ambulatory care center on the main campus south Green area at the intersection of South College Avenue and East Park Place. This well-equipped facility provides medical treatment and office consultation space for a variety of outpatient services.

In addition to the Laurel Hall facility, the SHS provides medical services in support of the university athletic program in a sports medicine clinic located in the Bob Carpenter Center.

Drug and Alcohol Amnesty: The University of Delaware prioritizes student safety over sanctions, and encourages students to seek help immediately if they or a peer are in need of medical attention while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. All students involved in an active call for help are eligible for exemption from related conduct sanctions. Learn more about amnesty protocol.

Submitting COVID-19 Results to SHS

Upload student COVID-19 test results to the Secure Student Health Portal:

  • Scan the form onto your computer; please be sure that the top of the form is on the top of the screen so that the form is not upside down.
  • Select “Messages.” Click on “New message,” then “I want to send a new message,” then “Standard secure message,” then “Add attachment.”
  • Send the message. If you are unable to scan the form and upload it, the form can be faxed to Student Health Services at 302-831-6407.

Students planning to access campus facilities must submit their test result prior to arrival. All students who tests positive for COVID-19, regardless of location, should report the result so that SHS can provide personalized telehealth support, daily wellness calls, and isolation clearance documentation for returning to daily life. Learn more on our testing options page below.

Complete your required forms

All incoming UD students are required to submit immunization and medical history forms prior to their arrival on campus to avoid holds on their account.

Prepare for your visit

Please bring your University of Delaware ID card with you for your visits to SHS, as well as medical insurance and prescription plan cards if available.
