Health Services

COVID-19 vaccine: Salve Regina will require all students to be vaccinated for COVID-19 prior to the fall 2021 semester. Please visit the Health Records webpage for instructions to submit your vaccination record in the student health portal. Vaccination records must be submitted by Aug. 1. Students will be contacted by Health Services only if there are questions about their vaccination record.


  • 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday by appointment only.
  • Health Services is available for both in-person and telehealth appointments. No walk-in appointments will be available until further notice.
  • Closed during the summer and holiday breaks.

Health Services is open to all full-time undergraduate students. There is no additional cost to be seen at Health Services, as this is included in your student service fee. Services are provided by a team of nurse practitioners and support staff. Fifth-year graduate students who wish to utilize Health Services should call the Business Office at (401) 341-2900 for more information.

Off-campus services such as laboratory testing, prescriptions, radiology and specialist care will be billed to your health insurance. Before you arrive on campus:

  • Call your insurance company to find out what off-campus services are covered in the state of Rhode Island.
  • If you are on medication, you should continue to have your current prescriber or primary care provider renew your prescriptions and check in with them during school breaks.
  • Clinicians can prescribe medications to students when they are seen at Health Services and medications can be picked up at a local pharmacy of their choice.

Health Services works with Newport Hospital to assist students during non-office hours. In emergency situations, students should go to the Newport Hospital emergency room or call 911 or the University's emergency line at (401) 341-2325.

Health Services is a confidential resource on campus, meaning that once you turn 18, staff are not allowed to discuss your health information with your family or other providers. If you have a medical emergency, the appropriate people will be notified. You may also choose to sign a release of information that allows Health Services to communicate with your family or other medical providers.
