Inpatient Services

2nd floor Laurel Hall
(302) 831-8324

24 hours/7 days a week, except for summer, semester break periods, or university holidays when residence halls are closed

    The SHS provides an eight-bed Inpatient Service in the Laurel Hall facility. Patients can be admitted by SHS staff physicians/nurse practitioners for illness requiring diagnostic testing and observation, treatment and isolation of infectious disease, and for injury requiring inpatient care. This allows students to maintain their course of study without serious interruptions.

Hours of Availability

The Inpatient Service is staffed by registered nurses and licensed practical nurses on a 24 hour, 7 day a week basis during the academic year. A SHS physician is available for telephone consultation after hours. There is no Inpatient Service during the summer, or during semester break periods and university holidays when the residence halls are closed.

Fees are covered by the Student Health Fee, with the exception of meals/beverages, which will be charged to meal plan or student account.
