Appointments

Please call 973-408-3414 to schedule your appointment. There is no charge to students for routine care at the Health Service.

Students are seen on an appointment basis. If you are unable to keep your appointment, please call the Health Service to cancel or reschedule as soon as possible to avoid a $15 charge, and so the appointment slot can be offered to someone else. Students arriving 10 minutes past the scheduled time of appointment may have to reschedule that appointment for another day. 

Location & Accessibility

The Health Service is located in the Morris Health Center, which is attached to the Holloway Residence Hall and behind the Simon Forum.

The building has a handicapped-accessible entrance located at the side door, which has a ramp and lowered doorbell. Since this door is normally locked, visitors who need this entryway should call 973-408-3414 in advance whenever possible. Handicapped parking is available near the entrance and an accessible restroom is inside the Health Service building.

Vision Statement

College health services are essential in an educational community and integrate the universal concepts of health promotion, health protection, disease prevention and clinical care in order to optimize the student’s ability to learn. These services focus on measures that enhance self-esteem and wellness, and not solely on problems or illnesses.

Nationally Accredited

Drew University Health Service is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Care, Inc.
