Health and Wellness Information


Important Information for All Summer Sessions Students

Located on the North Campus, the Health and Wellness Center is open from 9 a.m. to 4:45 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and 9 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. on Friday. The Health and Wellness Center is staffed by nurse practitioners and registered nurses. Appointments can be made by calling 516-463-6745. A current HofstraCard must be presented at the time of medical care. All medical care is confidential. Prescriptions, consultation fees, laboratory fees and X-ray charges are the responsibility of the patient.

New York State law requires all college and university students born on or after January 1, 1957, who register for six or more credits, to show proof of immunity against measles, mumps and rubella. This includes the measles vaccine (two doses) and one dose each of the rubella and mumps vaccines. Vaccines must have been received on or after a student’s first birthday. In addition, all students are required by New York state law to complete the Meningococcal Meningitis Information Response.

Proof of immunity must be submitted to the Health and Wellness Center either prior to or at the time of registration. Registration is considered finalized only when all documentation is submitted and approved.

Students may send the form directly to:

Health and Wellness Center
University College Hall
250 Hofstra University
Hempstead, NY 11549-2750

Copies of official health records from a former school or physician-documented history of measles or mumps are also acceptable. Serologic evidence of immunity must be accompanied by a copy of the laboratory report.

Students whose religious beliefs prohibit immunization or who qualify for a medical exemption must provide documentation from an appropriate authority. Questions concerning the immunization requirements should be directed to the Health and Wellness Center at 516-463-6745. Medical records may be faxed to 516-463-5161 and the original mailed to the Health and Wellness Center at the address above.
