Student Health Services

Elms College’s Health Center assists students with health promotion activities and practices that contribute to life-long wellness. We are equipped to handle everything from seasonal illnesses and common health concerns to the management of injuries and significant episodic and chronic health issues.

Beyond the everyday visits and general medical care, we run programs in collaboration with Residence Life encompassing such topics as preparing for the cold and flu season, learning stress management techniques, drug and alcohol prevention, sexual assault prevention and making responsible life choices.

Location and Hours

We are located at 15 Gaylord Street in a stand-alone brick house on the edge of campus. The Wellness Center building houses the Health Center and Counseling Center together to focus on a complete, holistic, approach to health and wellness. Hours of operation are 8:30 am – 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday. Students with medical concerns after hours, on weekends, or on holidays should contact the Residence Life staff on duty or Public Safety.
