For Students

Student Health Center (SHC)

SHC can help direct all students – regardless of their location – to appropriate care.

  • During the Fall 2020 semester, the SHC offers both in-person and virtual visits for students in the Washington, DC, area and offers virtual services to students living outside of the DC area (as allowed based on location and licensing regulations). 
  • If you need an appointment or would like to speak with a nurse or provider, please call the Student Health Center at 202-687-2200 or send a message through the MedStar portal, and we will determine the best way to meet your needs.
  • Along with routine primary care, SHC is providing COVID-19 testing to symptomatic students and providing care to students with COVID-19 concerns and symptoms.
  • For after-hours urgent medical concerns, call the page operator at 202-444-PAGE (7243) and ask for the Student Health Center provider on call.

Counseling and Psychiatric Services (CAPS)

Ongoing telehealth services are available to students located in DC, Maryland and Virginia, as well as other states where our clinicians’ licenses are valid. If CAPS is unable to provide services in the state where you are currently located, they will work to help you find local assistance in your home area.

  • CAPS is waiving all fee-for-service charges during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • To make a free appointment, call 202-687-6985 during business hours (Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.).
  • For mental health emergencies after hours, call 202-687-6985, though which a menu of options can direct you to our emergency consultation line.
  • Participate in virtual support groups and interpersonal process groups and workshops.
  • Students can make appointments directly by phone or email with a number of community mental health providers focused on serving traditionally marginalized or underserved communities, particularly women and femmes of color who have experienced sexual assault, harassment or violence and those who have experienced racial trauma. Services are free of charge, open to all students and available throughout the 2020-21 academic year.
