Additional resources

Campus Health Center

The Campus Health Center remains open Monday-Friday 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. to assist all students with their health care needs, including concerns about COVID-19, sexual health, clearance exams, flu shots and other immunizations, illness visits and more.

Appointment types 

When you call (313-577-5041), our front office will ask questions and determine what type of appointment is necessary. Appointment types include: Tele-health (phone), Tele-medicine (video), and Physical appointment at CHC.

Patient portal

The Campus Health Center has a patient portal which means you can do a lot of things virtually. Book appointments, fill out forms, check your results, etc., which will expedite your visits, saving you time.

Virtual programs and engagement

All of our programs are available on our Health Programming webpage and include PowerPoint presentations, recorded webinars, along with various handouts. As well, we launched live webinars that you can register for and our "Ask-an-Expert" engagement form, where you can ask specific questions on an anonymous form and a qualified healthcare provider will respond on CHC's social media platforms the next Wednesday. 

Vaccination, more important now than ever

While COVID-19 lingers on, the last thing you need to worry about is catching vaccine-preventable diseases like the flu. Many viruses and bacteria can easily spread in public shared spaces, so as the restrictions loosen and you start venturing out more, make sure your vaccines are up-to-date. Busy students don't have time to be sick, and vaccines are a safe and effective way to help prevent many serious diseases. CHC offers all WSU students flu shots at no out-of-pocket cost, which means we will bill insurance if you have it, but you won't pay a penny out of pocket! Call us at 313-577-5041 for more information.

With the help of students, faculty and staff, and WSU community volunteers as well as our donors we are able to continue to fulfill our mission of enhancing student success. 

Goals:

  • Provide students in need with access to nutritious food at no cost
  • Reduce food insecurities among students across WSU campus
  • Increase awareness of what it means to be food insecure while reducing the stigma surrounding food pantries and food insecurities
  • Provide students additional resources (throughout Wayne State and the greater community)
  • Enhance student success

eCHECKUP TO GO

eCHECKUP TO GO (e-CHUG) is a brief, confidential, interactive assessment tool that provides students with individualized feedback regarding their alcohol use, and helps them identify their risk of harm associated with that use. The e-CHUG was developed by San Diego State University and is currently used by nearly 600 colleges and universities. This tool is free to students with no limit on how many times the assessment can be taken, allowing for students to track their alcohol use over a period of time.

While there is a good portion of Wayne State students who either do not drink or drink very infrequently, most students will at some point know someone (a classmate, friend, family member), who drinks at levels that causes them concern. e-CHUG provides basic knowledge about alcohol and helps students identify risk factors and patterns that lead to dangerous and destructive drinking. The e-CHUG also provides a listing of local and campus resources available to individuals who may have an alcohol and/or drug problem. Knowing this information can strengthen our ability to help our friends when they need help and make Wayne State University a safe and fun place to live, work and play.
