Student Health Services

The Student Health Services is the primary medical service provider for enrolled NC State University students with a licensed pharmacy for your convenience.  In 2014, among 376 universities and colleges, we are nationally ranked among the Best Student Health Services in the United States and are ranked #1 in North Carolina by the Princeton Review.  In addition, we are nationally accredited by the Accreditation Association of Ambulatory Health Care.  Our staff include board certified physicians and licensed professionals offering an array of high quality services to meet the unique needs of college students. In-house we offer some specialty medical services, such as laboratory and x-ray, travel clinic, physical therapy, women’s health, occupational medicine, and allergy shots. Also, students may visit our on-site pharmacy to fulfill their prescription drug needs and over-the-counter requests.

Our providers are committed to high quality service, and take care to provide every student with prompt, individualized medical care. If you happen to need medical care outside Student Health Services’ scope, we will refer you to trusted medical specialists whose training, facilities, and technology facilitate the best possible care.

Stomach Bug Infecting Campus

Gastroenteritis also known as stomach bug or stomach flu, is infecting campus.  Symptoms include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain/cramping, fever and / or headache.  If you are experiencing these symptoms make an appointment online or call 919-515-7107.  The virus is spread by touching contaminated surfaces or objects and then touching your mouth, eating contaminated foods or drinks, and direct contact with stool or vomit while caring for a sick person.

If you become sick, take care of yourself with:

  • Medications. This may include fever reducing, anti-nausea, and/or anti-diarrhea medicines.
  • Oral Rehydration. Sip only clear non caffeinated liquids, such as ginger ale, water, ice chips, sport drinks, broth soups.
  • Diet. Once liquids are tolerated eat a bland diet.  This would include crackers, noodles, rice, and toast, and limit dairy.  Advance your diet as tolerated.
  • IV Fluids, as needed. Make an appointment with Student Health for this treatment.

Prevention is key to staying well.   Washing hands is the most important thing to do to prevent getting or spreading the infection.  Also, decontaminate surfaces and objects, such a computer keyboards, door handles, and steering wheels.
