The Gallaudet University Student Health Services (SHS) is committed to providing students with quality and efficient health care. In addition to treatment, the medical staff will help students understand the causes of their medical conditions or injuries and how they may be avoided in the future.

Student Health Service office hours are 8:00am to 4:30pm Monday through Friday for appointments only. Students that do not have appointments can walk-in Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 3:30pm. Student Health Services is closed weekends and University holidays. The student health fee entitles students to a number of basic health services without charge such as unlimited medical visits, referrals to specialists, and health education materials. Immunizations are no longer provided by Student Health Service. However, student health service will provide a list of immunization clinics in the area that will provide immunizations for a specific fee.

The immunization laws for the District of Columbia require all students under the age of 26 to provide proof of immunizations. Students will not be permitted to attend classes without the required immunizations.
