Student Health Services
Asbury Student Health Services provides a free clinic for students for evaluation and treatment of illness and injury, both acute and chronic issues. There is no charge to see the nurse or doctor. Appointments are strongly encouraged.
The Student Health Service offers appointments with registered nurses who evaluate health problems, treat according to protocol, and contact the University physician as needed. The physician also holds regular clinic hours twice a week. For students carrying at least 9 credit hours, consultations by appointment are available at no charge (with the exception of certain physicals). Services available are similar to those offered by most general physician offices and include:
- Assessment and treatment of illness and injury
- Physical and gynecological exams by the University Physician*
- Allergy injection administration
- Laboratory services* (available at the Health Service – strep, mono, blood sugar, urine – or blood drawn and sent to a Lexington laboratory)
- Routine immunizations* (Tetanus, Hepatitis A&B, flu, meningitis, TB skin test available)
- Health education programs and information
- Nutrition and health counseling

The Student Health Service is a one-story brick building located behind the cafeteria and to the left of the Aldersgate Commons Apartments (corner of W. College Avenue and Hughes Street - view the campus map)
