Providing Care to ALL PLU Students

PLU Health Services is a crucial part of maintaining a healthy campus.  Health Services 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 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.

How Can We Help?


PLU Health Services is pleased to offer primary care services to keep you as happy and healthy as possible during your PLU education.


We have the ability to conduct certain tests on site.  These include rapid screening for strep throat, STI testing, urinalysis, and electrocardiograms.


Find out which vaccines are required, and which are encouraged to help protect each student, as well as the PLU community as a whole.

Reproductive Health Services

PLU’s Health Services 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 PLU Health Service’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 PLU Health Services overview or make an appointment with one of our providers to discuss your specific needs.
