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?

Testing is also available through personal healthcare providers and local and mobile testing sites. Commuter students and students who live on campus and are scheduled to arrive early may utilize these options to secure testing no more than three days prior to coming to campus, provided no air travel occurs and there is no engagement in high-risk behaviors after testing. Students choosing this option must self-quarantine after testing until results are received, and must submit their test results to the Quarantine Coordinator by completing this form prior to participating in any in-person campus activity.

NEW Sickle Cell Screening Policy

For the 2022-23 academic year, all new NCAA and Club Sports Athletes are required to provide results of newborn screening testing, testing for Sickle Cell Trait through their healthcare provider, or the PLU Health Center, or the Dept of Health in their state of birth. Sickle cell testing waivers will no longer be accepted.
