NYU Student Health Center (SHC)

The Student Health Center (SHC) provides students with medical, psychological, pharmaceutical, educational, crisis response, and support services.  Whether your needs are routine or urgent, you require counseling, or have questions about health services, the SHC staff can assist you.


Wellness Exchange


The Wellness Exchange is available to all students and connects you to services at NYU that support your overall health and mental health needs.  The Exchange is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week by calling the hotline (above), and it puts you in touch with professionals who can help you address day-to-day challenges and questions, as well as any crises you may encounter including depression, sexual assault, anxiety, and drug and alcohol abuse.

Health Insurance
Only international visiting students are covered by NYU Student Health Insurance. All other visiting students are not.  Please check with your own health insurance to determine if you are covered for services provided by the Student Health Center before you make an appointment.  We also encourage all students to carry a copy of their insurance cards with them at all times in case of an emergency.

Safety Tips
We want all students to be safe while traveling around the city. Basic safety tips are available on the NYU Public Safety website.  All students are encouraged to read this information prior to their arrival.
