Oberlin students have access to health care services through the Student Health Insurance Plan. As a full-time student, you’ll receive this benefit through your tuition unless you waive enrollment in the plan by the deadline prior to the start of fall semester.

Professional Services Building

Primary Care

Student Health Services features a primary care medical facility whose staff is experienced in treating common medical problems seen on college campuses. Our trained staff offers Initial diagnosis and treatment for a broad spectrum of illnesses and injuries as well as appropriate follow-up care.

Onsite specialty care includes certain immunization and allergy services, and gynecological health care, including birth control services. We maintain a network of local experts who offer additional specialty care as appropriate. Basic laboratory services suitable to a college community are available; we refer more complex services to outside specialists. The student’s insurance provider or the student handles the costs for referrals to specialists, more complex laboratory work, international immunizations, or X-rays.

Student Health Services is a short walk or bike ride from the main campus at 247 W. Lorain St., Suite D. Students requiring medical care should call to schedule an appointment. We offer a daily walk-in hour for appointments to students when scheduling one prohibits them from meeting other commitments. We take care of students on a first-come, first-served basis.

24-Hour Nurse Line

Should you not be able to come to the center, or don’t believe an office visit is necessary, call our Nurse Line. The 24-hour, seven-day-a-week, toll-free telephone line (877-924-7758) offers health advice from a registered nurse and access to an audio information library that provides practical, easy-to-understand recorded information on more than 450 health-related topics.
