The Health Services office provides students with urgent care for common minor illnesses and injuries. For serious or prolonged illnesses or injuries, students are referred to a local hospital or private physician, private medical provider or urgent care.
To avoid potentially expensive health care bills for off-campus medical care, students should have health insurance that provides them coverage while they are attending college. All Manhattan College students are automatically enrolled in a mandatory student accidence insurance plan, but the College does not provide students with health insurance coverage. See more information about health insurance options students can purchase.
Although an appointment is not necessary, students who want to see one of the Health Services staff should call ahead.
