UPDATE AS OF 4/15/2020: Student Health Center (SHC) services are now operational Monday - Friday.

The SHC is operating with limited hours, reduced capacity, and mostly through tele-medicine. Students are still able to access live help with our clinicians during the hours the SHC is open. Given the unpredictable, daily-changing circumstances due to COVID-19, our most accurate hours of operation will be available by calling our general number: (310) 243-3629.

Students seeking medical care will need to call our general office number; during our hours of operation, calls will be taken by clinical staff who will determine if the person can be assisted and treated through tele-medicine, or whether, in rare cases, a patient will be seen in person.  Instructions will be given on this call. Please know our doors are locked for safety purposes, but we have staff on-site available to do their best to address your health care needs, given these unusual circumstances. Again, call first: (310) 243-3629.

Psychological Services will be providing live mental health assistance by appointment through tele-therapy. Please call their phone line at (310) 243-3818 for further information.

We have compiled some useful information (financial issues, housing and food assistance, legal help, etc) click here that students may find helpful during this COVID19 crisis.

Updates for SHC and Psychological Services will also be posted on our social media pages (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter).

STUDENTS WHO FEEL THEY HAVE A MEDICAL EMERGENCY SHOULD IMMEDIATELY CALL 911.

  • Harbor UCLA Medical Center, 1000 W. Carson Street, Torrance, CA  90502, (310) 222-2345

Student Psychological Services understand this is a difficult time for you, your family, and community. With this in mind, as part of our proactive prevention in response to COVID-19, we will temporarily be offering tele-health (which will include telephone and/or video conferencing) in lieu of in-person services.

Our operating hours are Monday - Friday from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m., but please call (310) 243-3818 at any time if you are interested in psychological services.

IF YOU FEEL YOU ARE HAVING A PSYCHOLOGICAL EMERGENCY, CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY.

During this time of our pharmacy closure, students who rely on our-low cost pharmacy services can be directed to the following resources click here.

Please note:

1) At Crown Drugs, near campus, students are given a discount with their student ID;

2) We have arranged/confirmed a ‘reciprocity’ with Cal State LA (see page two of the flyer), to honor our students’ prescriptions, since our pharmacy is closed;

3) Costco pharmacy DOES NOT require a student to be a member. We recommend student call ahead to any of the options on the flyer and see where they can get the medicine for the lowest price.

NEW INFORMATION ABOUT UPCOMING CSU-WIDE IMMUNIZATION REQUIREMENTS

Please be advised that there will be an upcoming requirement for immunizations, per Chancellor’s Office (CO) Executive Order 803.  Students will be required to show proof of being compliant with the requirement.  This requirement will initially apply to incoming/transferring students, but it is recommended that all students consider becoming compliant with these requirements, as they are good health practices per California Department of Public Health (CDPH). Also, in the event of certain outbreaks, all students may be asked to verify their immunization status. The immunizations required and recommended by the CO can be found here. A definite date for compliance with immunizations has not yet been set; this date will be forthcoming in the next few months and students will have a semester to get their shots. This notice serves to notify students which immunizations will be required so that they have time to get them.  Please note, students/parents will be further notified as to how to input/upload their own immunization records once the process is set up for this purpose.  Please DO NOT bring immunization records to the CSUDH Student Health Center or the Admissions Office for this purpose, but DO start working on getting these documents/immunization requirements taken care of so as not to scramble, as many of these vaccinations do take certain time intervals and multiple doses to complete.
