Health Services

Walk-in hours are canceled until further notice. You must call and speak with a nurse before coming to Health Services.

Health Services provides high-quality, confidential healthcare services to students in an ambulatory care setting, including RN triage for first aid/emergent care, acute care visits and referrals to specialists. Comprehensive GYN care, STI testing and free rapid HIV testing are also available.

Our qualified and knowledgeable providers give personal attention specific to all healthcare needs. Referrals are available as indicated. Students with a RISD Health Insurance Plan are required to schedule a visit before seeking outside care. Appointments are required. Limited walk-in hours are available to first-year students for acute illness only.

Students can also manage their health information with the Patient Portal, an online service for conveniently and confidentially submitting health and immunization records and accessing information about past or upcoming visits with Health Services.
