Sexual Assault Emergencies

Campus Health provides resources and support for survivors of sexual assault. The Health Centers Uptown and Downtown and the Counseling Center are designated as confidential resources, which means we will not share the information you disclose to us unless you provide permission.

You do not need to make a formal report or press charges against someone to receive care.

Interactive Sexual Misconduct Resource Guide

The Tulane Title IX office has created an interactive guide for student survivors of sexual violence.

How to Seek Medical Care

During business hours

If a sexual assault emergency occurs during or shortly before our regular business hours, you may visit one of our two locations to seek care:

Uptown campus - Building 92 (on the corner of Newcomb Place and Willow Street).
Downtown campus - 137 Elk Pl., Room 261

The Health Centers offer emergency same-day appointments. To schedule, call 504-865-5255 and let the patient representative know you need to be evaluated for sexual assault.

Our staff will perform the following services:

  • Offer information about legal and medical options
  • Obtain a medical history
  • Evaluate for injury and illnesses
  • Provide STI screening and treatment
  • Provide pregnancy screening and emergency contraception information and prescription (if applicable)
  • Give referrals for follow-up care including counseling and medical treatment

There is no out-of-pocket cost for an appointment or lab tests for emergency evaluations. Prescriptions are covered by insurance or accounts receivable/self pay. 

During weekends

If a sexual assault emergency occurs during a weekend, please do not wait until Monday to seek care. We recommend you visit University Medical Center New Orleans or Tulane Lakeside Hospital and ask for a forensic consult.
