Health & Wellness
Bryant University Health Services is committed to your overall well-being, and our goal is to help you become a full and active participant in your health care.
On-site medical care are provided nurse practitioners and a physician.
Clinical components of the program include treatment of illnesses and injuries, women's and men's health care, laboratory services, immunizations, support services for students with physical disabilities and referrals as appropriate.
We strive to support students in developing a healthy lifestyle that includes eating well, getting enough sleep, exercising, and reducing stress in order to promote success inside and outside of the classroom.
Visits are free of charge to all full-time students. In the event of an emergency, EMTs are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Visits and medical records are kept confidential and maintained separately from academic records. Only in a true emergency or with written consent of the student is information shared.

These requirements are in accordance with Section 23-1-18(9) of the General Laws of Rhode Island. If an outbreak of a vaccine-preventable disease should occur, any exempt, unvaccinated or undocumented students shall be excluded from school for a period of time as determined by the Rhode Island Health Department based on a case-by-case analysis of public health risk.
Students who do not provide the health requirements by July 15 will have a hold placed on their student account which will hinder their ability to register for classes for the upcoming semester.
