The Wellness Center

The Wellness Center includes both Student Health Services and Counseling Services. These services are located at the Owings Mills campus on the top level of the Caves Sports and Wellness Center. The Wellness Center staff can be reached at 443-352-4200 or fax 443-352-4201. The Wellness Center is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. with extended evening hours on Tuesdays and Wednesdays until 7 p.m.

Student Health Services

The Wellness Center offers limited primary care services by appointment with the University's physician or nurse practitioners. A minimal fee will be charged to the student's account for services and supplies; private health insurance is not accepted for payment. Health Services has numerous informational brochures and resources addressing health issues and will offer assistance with community referrals. Health awareness and health promotion events are held frequently throughout the year. Activities include health education, screenings, and guest speakers. These events are sponsored by the Wellness Center and Responsible Education Awareness Leaders (R.E.A.L.), our peer education group. The R.E.A.L. team also partners with various Stevenson University clubs, organizations, and departments.

Student Health Requirements

All full-time commuter and resident students are required to have the Stevenson University Student Health Profile completed by July 1 for fall entrance and January 20 for spring entrance. All full-time students are required to complete this profile online even if they are turning in other health related records to other departments. Please refer to those specific departments for any health requirement questions, i.e. Athletics, Beverly K. Fine School of the Sciences, and GPS. If a student was previously a part-time student and is now taking 12 or more credits, a Student Health Profile must be completed. Students do not need to resubmit the Student Health Profile  every year. Students who have been away from Stevenson University for at least 2 years and are reapplying for admission as a full-time student must complete another Student Health Profile.

In addition, all students living in Stevenson University residential housing are required to be immunized against meningococcal disease (MCV4/Menveo/Menactra). Some students may require a booster dose of the meningitis vaccine prior to moving into the Residence Halls. At this time, the meningitis B (Trumenba/Bexero) vaccination is NOT required for Stevenson students. Commuter students who decide to become a resident are required to comply with additional immunization requirements as stated on the Student Health Profile.

Failure to submit a completed Student Health Profile  will block a student from registering for future classes and/or lead to removal from housing.

Counseling Services

From time to time, students are presented with concerns or problems that require challenging decisions and effective coping strategies. Talking with a professional counselor is an opportunity for students to explore issues that may be interfering with their success and happiness in college. Counseling is a confidential process designed to help students learn more about themselves, address their concerns and problems, and discover effective solutions. Some of the typical concerns students may have include adjustment difficulties, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, sexual assault, identity issues, and self-esteem. Counseling is confidential and provided free for all Stevenson University students.
