Health & Safety


VCU students taking a minimum of three credit hours may visit University Student Health Services. Fees for services are billed to the student's VCU account. The University Student Health Services website offers more information on services, billing, and hours.

The Wellness Resource Center, or the Well, helps students achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle with an array of services and resources related to personal wellness.


VCU is located in a diverse, urban, community. All students must take an active role in maintaining their personal safety.
