The SHC is available to all full-time students enrolled in courses at Philadelphia University.  We encourage all students who have paid the Student Health Fee to visit the SHC as often as needed.  For details about our services and more, please click on the links to the right of this page.


The Philadelphia University Student Health Center (SHC) is dedicated to providing confidential, comprehensive and accessible health care for all students, so they may achieve their maximum intellectual and academic potential.  Through student-centered programs and services, we encourage healthy behaviors and holistic lifestyle choices in order to support a foundation of wellness in our students.  Our mission is to help students become their own health advocates as they strive to reach an optimal state of well-being, and at the sametime, to teach them how to best navigate the health care system to uphold their needs.

"Wellness must be a prerequisite to all else. Students cannot be intellectually proficient if they are physically and psychologically unwell." - Ernest Boyer
