Student making an appointment

All visits to the Student Health and Wellness Center are by appointment only. Appointments are scheduled on the basis of availability and the preference of our students.

Due to COVID-19 we are not accepting walk-ins at this time, please call ahead for an appointment

If you choose to walk in without an appointment, we will do our best to accommodate you. Please know that there may be lengthy wait times and there is no guarantee that we can see you the same day.

Scheduling an Appointment

The services of the Student Health and Wellness Center are available to eligible students only.

Due to privacy regulations, students are asked to schedule their own appointments using one of three methods listed below:

  • By phone at 410-516-8270
  • In-person, by visiting our office

Due to COVID-19 online scheduling has been temporarily disabled

  • Online via the Health WebPortal
    • Once inside the JHU WebPortal you can:
      • Make and cancel appointments
      • Fill out required forms
      • Securely communicate with your health care provider
      • Receive lab results
      • View and print your immunization history

Same-Day Appointments

Same-day appointments can be scheduled beginning at 8:30 a.m. of the day you’d like to be seen. It’s best to call as early in the day as possible, as our appointments fill quickly. While we work with students to accommodate their schedules, it may be necessary to miss class if you are ill and need to be seen by a provider on the same day.

Saturday Appointments

Saturday hours are limited and by appointment only on a first come, first serve basis, due to our continued COVID responsibilities. Please call us beginning at 9 AM to ask about appointments. Once we reach our limited capacity, you will be referred to an urgent care center. You must show up ahead of your scheduled time, as we will not be able to see you if you are at all late for your appointment. Please be advised that we will only see patients for the following reasons, assuming that appointments are still available:

  • COVID symptoms, after calling the JHCCC
  • Sore throat
  • Vomiting/diarrhea (began within 24 hours)
  • Recent injury (occurred within 24 hours)
  • Urinary symptoms
  • Recent STD exposure
  • Eye issue (started within 24 hours)
  • Gynecological issue (started within 24 hours)

Saturday appointments are available during fall and spring semesters from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. No Saturday appointments are available during holiday weekends, intersession and during the summer.

Please note that not all services are available on Saturdays.

Appointment Adjustments

Please be prompt for your scheduled appointment to complete the check-in process, receive your vitals and complete any appointment specific forms. If you are 10 minutes late for your appointment, we will do our best to fit you into the schedule. However, out of fairness to other students, you may be asked to reschedule your appointment.

At times, you may need to cancel or reschedule an appointment. If this happens, we ask that you do so in a timely fashion so that we may be able to not only accommodate you, but also the other students we serve.
