Pre-College Programs: Health Services
Information for Accepted Students
Health Services is located in Andrews House on the corner of Brown and Charlesfield Streets.
(401) 863-3953 is the off-campus number.
Brown University Health Services is available to all students during business hours (8:00am – 4:00pm) Monday through Friday for medical problems such as colds, cuts, sprains, or infections. Situations involving medical attention are referred to local area hospitals, and parents/guardians will be notified. Limited pharmacy and x-ray hours are offered. Please bring a credit card or cash to pay for these services.
Brown University maintains its own Emergency Medical Services (EMS). Our EMTs are equipped to respond to medical emergencies 24 hours a day. Situations involving medical attention after business hours are referred to local area hospitals.
A Residential Advisor will chaperone the student at the hospital and remain with the student until he or she is treated and released. If the student is a minor, the parent/guardian will be notified if a student is transported to the hospital. Students should expect to spend an average of 3 hours in the Emergency Room.
Please remember to return a completed Medical Authorization Form and Medical and Immunization History Form to us before the start of your program. The forms will be sent to you through email correspondence with associated directions on how to complete and submit the forms. We regret that we cannot allow you to participate in the program until the medical form is completed and on file with us. If your student has any significant allergies, medical conditions, or needs special accommodations (asthma, mobility issues, etc.), please complete the Disability, Medical, & Dietary Request Form.
