Health Services

Medical Emergencies

Students who experience a medical emergency and are on campus should call Security at 267-341-3333. Students who are off campus should call 911.

Health Regulations

All full time undergraduate, residential, and international students are required to submit a completed Health Packet to Health Services. Please submit the required Health Packet prior to July 1 for the fall semester and December 1 for the spring semester.

Failure to complete the Health Packet and the requirements could affect moving into housing, athletic participation, or being seen at Holy Family University Health Services.

PA Law #955 requires students living in university housing to receive the meningitis vaccine or to sign a waiver of refusal. Students who fail to complete this form and are not immunized against meningitis will not be allowed to move into housing until this form is completed or the student submits proof of immunization to meningitis.

Students who fail to submit the required health forms can only receive emergency care in Health Services and will not be scheduled for routine appointments until the required forms are received.

Graduate and part-time students who select to schedule non-emergency appointments in Health Services are required to provide a completed Health History Form, Physical, and Immunization records at their first visit.

Forms & Insurance Information

The university does not provide health insurance coverage for students. Students are responsible for providing their own health insurance, whether by a parent/guardian's health coverage or their own election into a plan.
