Health Services/Student Health Center

Room L.67.00 New Building

The college’s Health Services Center is designed to meet the health care needs of John Jay students as well as to ensure that the college complies with New York State Public Health Law with regard to students’ immunizations against measles, mumps, and rubella. The center provides high-quality, accessible, and cost-effective health activities and services to facilitate the physical, emotional and social well-being of the John Jay community.

The center offers “mini” urgent care, primary women’s health, nutrition and fitness education, preventive health care and health education services, and promotes wellness initiatives throughout the campus. Where necessary, the Health Services Center makes referrals to low-cost medical centers/clinics, dispenses over-the-counter medications, and provides on-site health screenings, physicals, and prescription services.

Medical Emergencies


In a life-threatening emergency, dial 911 to reach New York City Emergency Medical Services. For urgent medical needs when the center is closed, notify the Department of Public Safety (212.237.8888). An ambulance from Fast Care service of St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital will be provided. In the event of injury on campus or during off-campus activities, the incident must be reported to the Department of Public Safety (New Building, Room L2.61) and then to the College Health Services Center (New Building, Room L.67). The health director will direct students as to how to file the necessary accident insurance claim.
