Student Health Center

Health Services

Champlain's Student Health Services are open to all students, whether they're covered by college insurance or their parent or guardian's policy. Health Services is available for both on-campus resident and commuter students.

The mission of Champlain's Student Health Services is to provide health care through preventative, diagnostic, therapeutic, and rehabilitative services. These services are focused not only on the individual, but also on the College community as a whole. The health staff is dedicated to providing humane care and competent treatment, along with responsible referrals when indicated.

Champlain provides the following health services, as well as assistance with many other health-related problems and questions to all students:

  • Illness & Injury Evaluations
  • Lab Studies for Diagnostic Testing
  • Health Counseling


Student Health Services is located at the ground level of Whiting Hall.

Office Hours

The Student Health Center is open Monday–Friday, 9:00 am to noon and 1:00 pm to 4:30 pm.


The best way to make sure you are seen by one of our nurse practitioners is to schedule an appointment. You can schedule an appointment in person or via telephone. If you choose to walk-in without an appointment, note that we are often busy. We would be happy to see you if time permits but may need to schedule an appointment for later.

After Hours

If you have an urgent medical need outside of the health center hours, please go to an urgent care clinic. Urgent care clinics are walk-in centers (no appointment necessary) for immediate health concerns that do not require a trip to the emergency room. Bring identification and an insurance card. For more detailed after hour instructions, see the After Hour Instruction in our Resources page.

Class Absences

Illness and injury may occasionally impact a student's ability to attend class or to complete assignments. Students in this situation are urged to notify their instructors immediately when an illness or injury prevents them from attending a class or completing work. The Health Center does not provide written medical excuses for class absences. Students may request documentation to verify the date and time they were seen at the Health Center, but no further information will be provided. Students are responsible for making up all work missed.

This approach allows for students, as young adults, to advocate for themselves and take responsibility for their health and academics. This also encourages instructors to communicate directly with students if concerns arise.
