Student Health Services

The mission of Quinnipiac University Student Health Services is to restore health, educate and support the Quinnipiac community by providing student-centered acute and preventive health services. Our vision is to promote a healthy campus community where students can enjoy optimal health as they pursue their academic, career and personal goals. Our highest priority is to meet the emergent health needs of the student population through assessment, triage, treatment, education and referral.

Prescriptions may be taken to local pharmacies to be filled at the usual and customary fee. Students have the option to purchase some medications through Student Health Services.

Student Requirements

Quinnipiac University requires all students to be adequately immunized against measles, mumps, rubella and varicella, according to Connecticut state requirements. A meningitis vaccine is required for anyone living in campus-owned housing within five years from the first day of classes. 

Students are responsible for completing their student health requirements through the Patient Portal.

All students must maintain major medical insurance. Quinnipiac University, along with Gallagher Student Health, has developed a health insurance plan especially for students. The plan provides coverage for illnesses and injuries that occur on and off campus and includes special cost-saving features to keep the coverage as affordable as possible. A student may waive health insurance coverage if he or she presents evidence of other health insurance under a plan that provides benefits equal to or greater than the Quinnipiac University Student Health Insurance Plan. Students must document evidence of coverage and make an online waiver decision by the waiver deadline of June 15. For additional information regarding the plan, please visit the Gallagher Student Health & Special Risk website.
