Hurricane Ida Update: All Campus Health services including the Health Center for Student Care, Counseling Center, and Pharmacy are currently closed for in person appointments due to Hurricane Ida until 9/27. Campus Health will reopen for telehealth appointments on 9/21. For medical needs, the Nurse Advice Line is active and can help you make decisions about whether to make an appointment with an outside health care provider, how to take self-care measures, how to renew prescriptions or answer medication questions, and much more. Call 504-862-8121, leave a message, and a nurse will return your call. For mental health support and crisis support, The Line is available 24/7 to Tulane students. Call The Line at (504) 264-6074. We are not able to retrieve medications left behind on campus or to ship medications from the Student Health Center at this time.

Referral Coordination

The Health Center is available to provide Tulane students with the information and resources they need to access medical health care with a specialist (such as allergists, orthopedics, OB/GYN, dermatologists, endocrinologists, cardiologists, etc.) in the New Orleans community. Please call the Health Center at 504-865-5255 to get in touch with the Referral Coordinator and discuss your individual needs.

  • In most cases, students with T-SHIP who are seeking a referral must visit a provider at the Health Center for assistance prior to receiving care in the community. There are some exceptions to this. For more information, please visit our Insurance Frequently Asked Questions page under the topic When is a Health Center referral not necessary?

  • Students with third-party health insurance who are seeking a referral are advised to get advice from a provider at the Health Center to ensure that they are referred to the proper specialist for their issue; however, they may get a referral from the Referral Coordinator.

Appointments are advisable and preferred.
