Our university is concerned about each student's overall well-being while enrolled at MU. As such, one of the services we provide is an on-campus health clinic that meets the normal, day-to-day health needs of our students.
Students are able to use this service at no additional charge; however, in order to serve the health needs of our students, the clinic staff needs to have appropriate information about each student's health history and their current state of health.
Mansfield University believes that this information is so important that it requires all incoming students to complete a Health Evaluation Report Form. This form must be turned in to the Health Clinic/Wellness Center, prior to the start of classes. The form can be mailed to Mansfield University Health Clinic, 125 Clinton Street, Suite W002, Mansfield, PA16933.
Health Care Services for MU students are provided by personnel at our on-campus clinic located on the ground floor of Spruce. The clinic is staffed with a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP), Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), and an Administrative Assistant. However, with the opening of the new housing in Spruce Hall in October, a new Health Clinic/Wellness Center will open there.

You must present your currently validated student I.D. card at your appointment. Also, it is important for you and your physician to have completed the Health Evaluation medical questionnaire and submit it to staff at Orientation! This will provide clinic staff with very valuable medical history should you need treatment. Failure to submit the questionnaire could delay the most appropriate treatment when needed later.
All ancillary testing and services will be billed directly to you.

The University has an arrangement with the community ambulance service to provide emergency transportation to area hospitals. Students' health insurance will be billed for this service by the Ambulance Association. The University may also support return trips to campus and some transportation to other medical appointments via a volunteer service utilizing student drivers when available.
Students are strongly encouraged to have some type of accident/health insurance. The university makes a low cost accident/health insurance policy available through outside providers if you do not have some other coverage.
