Student Health Center

Preventive Care

Brandeis Health Center is a resource for the campus student community providing medical assessment, diagnosis, treatment and consultation, as well as preventive and wellness health promotion.


Allergy Immunotherapy

We do not administer allergy injections, but there are excellent practices in the area that take new patients. Other practices may administer serums prescribed by your own allergist. Call us (781-736-3677) for a list of local specialists.

Laboratory Services

We provide several on-site Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA)-waived tests but do not operate a full clinical medical laboratory. Specimens are routinely sent to Quest for analysis. 

It is the student’s responsibility to know if insurance has any coverage specifications for laboratory services. Students will be responsible for any external laboratory bills not covered by their insurance.

Prescription Services

Students are welcome to have their home provider continue to prescribe for them utilizing one of these pharmacy choices:  Keyes Pharmacy, Capsule or a local pharmacy.  Keyes Pharmacy will deliver to the Health Center and students will be notified when their prescription is available for pick up.

If a student is running out of their prescription by an external provider, the Health Center team can assist.  This will require an appointment at the Health Center.

Off-Campus Resources

We maintain a list of specialty providers in the Waltham and Greater Boston areas and can assist you with these names. As always, you are responsible for checking with your insurer regarding your plan and network coverage and/or referral needs.


The closest hospital to Brandeis University is Newton Wellesley Hospital (NWH), a premier community teaching hospital offering medical, surgical and specialty care, 24-hour emergency services and a pediatric emergency department. 

Boston area hospitals are utilized when necessary.
