The Student Health Center provides health care to Champlain College’s undergraduate and international students—both on-campus residents and commuters. Our staff includes registered nurses and nurse practitioners as well as a variety of medical consultants.
In addition to providing individualized health care, we also offer health education and wellness both on a one-to-one basis and through campus-wide programming. We encourage students to take responsibility for their own health by providing information and counseling students on health options. The Student Health Center is open five days a week during the academic year, with reduced hours during college vacations and breaks.
The mission of Champlain's Student Health Center is to provide health care through preventative, diagnostic, therapeutic, and rehabilitative services. These services are focused not only on the individual, but on the College community as a whole. The health staff is dedicated to providing humane care and competent treatment, along with responsible referrals when needed.Along with assistance for many other health-related issues and questions, Champlain provides the following health services to all students:
The Student Health Center is staffed by Nurse Practitioners, Registered Nurses, and a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner. We work with all current Champlain College undergraduate and international students to meet their specific health care needs through preventative, diagnostic, therapeutic, and rehabilitative care.

Our physical address is 203 S. Willard Street, Burlington, Vermont
The Student Health Center is open Monday—Friday, 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM.
Care is provided by appointment only. Please call, email or use the patient portal to schedule an appointment.
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 serious concerns and health conditions, go to the emergency room. For more detailed after-hour instructions, see the After-Hour Instructions in our Resources page.
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 missed work.
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.
