Harris-McDew Student Health Center
3219 College Street
Savannah, Georgia 31404
The Harris-McDew Health Center is located on Jasmine Avenue adjacent to Payne Hall. It includes beds for temporary observation and care.
Student Health Services is funded by Student Health fees and operates under the Division of Student Affairs. This institutional health center is operated in conjunction with a university and restricts its admissions and services to the institution's students primarily for diagnosis, first aid and the treatment of patients with a minor or short term acute illness or injury.
All students enrolled in the University that pay the Student Health fee are eligible to receive services at the Health Center. The student must present his or her student identification card in order to receive treatment.
Employees may receive treatment for emergencies only.
Students who are too ill to attend classes must report to the student health center or obtain a private physician's excuse to present to the instructor upon returning to classes. Sick students may not be permitted to remain in the residence hall without medical attention. Any seriously contagious or unusual illness of students should be reported to Health Services immediately.
