In the event of a medical emergency (injury or illness) anywhere on campus, contact Public Safety Desk at extension 3128 or dial “55” from any campus phone. When using a cell phone you must dial the entire number (201) 200-3128.
If you are off-campus, please dial 911 to reach the emergency operator in your local municipality.
A physician is available on campus on a part-time basis (for registered students only) during the academic semesters. Please call the H&WC (201) 200-3456 for the current month’s schedule.
You do not need to make an appointment. You may walk in at any time during our office hours to see a registered nurse, who can assess your problem. We will do our best to minimize your wait to be seen. Some treatment for certain conditions can be initiated by the nurse. If you need further assessment or treatment by a physician, the nurse will advise you when the physician will be available. If it is after hours, there may be a need to be referred to a local emergency department.
The H&WC does not provide counseling services for emotional or mental health issues, however NJCU does have a COUNSELING CENTER. For more information, visit the NJCU Counseling Center website.
The H&WC does not fill prescriptions. If you live on campus, you should plan to have enough of your prescription medication to last until your next visit home. If this is not possible, there are many local pharmacies available in the Jersey City area. The H&WC can provide you with a list of pharmacies local to NJCU. Please note your health insurance or prescription plan may place limitations on where you are able to have your prescriptions filled.
