WVSU | West Virginia State University
Welcome to Health Services
The WVSU Medical Staff invites you to visit the Health Center.  We look forward to meeting you and helping with your healthcare needs.  As health educators, we think this department is an important aspect of your college success.
 
Your medical family at WVSU consists of a physician, a registered nurse, and a Licensed Practical Nurse. This website should inform you about the services we can provide, our office location and hours, eligibility information, how to contact us, general health tips, privacy practices, and student responsibilities.  It is important to note that the Registered Nurse is not authorized to leave the Health Center facility.  Should you require immediate medical attention and are physically unable to report to the Health Center, please call 911 and then 304-766-3181.
