Health Center Tour

Nursing major Shannon Fien and Registered Nurse Julia Monaco offer a tour of Student Health Services located on Metropolitan Lane on Widener's Main Campus in Chester.

In order to support an individual’s achievement of optimal health and wellness, Widener University Student Health Services operates under a holistic philosophy which promotes a healthy mind, body and spirit.

Student Health Services strives to educate students to responsibly seek appropriate health care for wellness, illness and injury using Healthy Campus 2020 clinically evidenced best practices. Our university health policies, initiatives and programming serve to support our commitment to illness prevention, health promotion and ongoing wellness to improve campus patterns of healthy behaviors, values and attitudes.

Proud to Be Tobacco-Free

In order to promote a healthy environment for students, faculty, staff, and visitors, Widener University became tobacco-free, effective July 1, 2010 on all four campuses. Widener was the first four-year university in Pennsylvania to do so!

The Tobacco-Free Policy applies to all university faculty, staff, students, visitors, contractors and guests at all times and the use of tobacco, including e-cigs and vaping, will be prohibited within university facilities, outdoor areas, and university owned vehicles.

Student Health Services offers students both educational programming and patient care/individual counseling appointments for options in smoking cessation.
