Reproductive Health Services

PLU’s Health Center is fully aligned with Washington State in our shared commitment to ensuring that students have equitable access to sexual and reproductive health services within our scope of care and to informed referrals to resources and services beyond the Health Center’s scope of care. Our first priority is the health, safety, and well-being of our students, and we recognize the role of sexual and reproductive health as an essential element of overall health. If you are a PLU student and have questions about sexual and reproductive health resources available to you, please refer to the Health Center overview or make an appointment with one of our providers to discuss your specific needs.

Providing Care to ALL PLU Students

The PLU Health Center is a crucial part of maintaining a healthy campus. The Health Center offers primary healthcare services to ALL PLU students, including graduate and international students. We provide high-quality, confidential medical care right here on campus. Our wide range of services include management of acute illnesses and injuries like colds, sore throat, or muscle injuries. We also evaluate and manage chronic illnesses like asthma and high blood pressure. We also offer immunizations, specific men’s and women’s healthcare services, physical examinations, sexual health services, and care for emotional and mental health.

Have you secured your own COVID-19 test?

Students are strongly encouraged to obtain home antigen test kits and to bring them to campus as part of their personal care items. Test kits are available online and at local pharmacies. The free test kits provided through the US Postal Service may still be available, even after May 11. The Washington State Department of Health COVID testing website has up to date information on testing availability and insurance coverage for lab testing, and more. Testing is also available through personal healthcare providers and local and mobile testing sites.
