STUDENT HEALTH & PHARMACY- Revised Operation Hours

Until further notice, the Student Health Service and Pharmacy will be open for business Monday thru Friday – 9am to 5pm and Saturday 10am to 3pm.

The Student Health Service is committed to keeping members of our community as healthy and safe as possible, while also striving to provide the highest level of service.   With COVID-19 case rates increasing across Allegheny County, it is possible staffing shortages may impact — temporarily — hours and scope of certain services.

WE ask for your patience during this time.
