Student Health Service

SHS Service Update

During the Holiday Break, 12/19/20 – 1/3/21, the Student Health Service will be closed for most primary care and non-essential procedures and visits.   However, consultation for COVID-19 related health concerns will be available by calling the SHS at 412-383-1800.   You can leave a message and a SHS health professional will return your call or stay on the line and talk to a nurse through our 24-hour Nurse Advice Service.

COVID-19 Testing

Although the SHS will not offer COVID-19 testing during the break, local options can be discussed by calling the SHS.   The Allegheny County Department of Health also has free testing sites at various locations throughout the county.   For further details, refer to this link.
