Emergency Medical Assistance
Emergency medical assistance is initiated with a call to University Police at (203) 392-5375 or 911. A police dispatcher will obtain a brief description of the emergency and send an officer to the scene. In case of a life-threatening situation (e.g., apparent heart attack, breathing difficulty, state of unconsciousness) the dispatcher will call simultaneously for an ambulance and arrange for an escort for the ambulance to the exact campus location. In all cases, Health Services will be notified of the action taken.

HPV Vaccinations are available to any registered student up to the age of 26 who hasn't been vaccinated or hasn't completed the 3-shot series. In the event vaccinations are no longer available, students will be offered a prescription to take to a pharmacy of choice. * Students who are under 18 will need permission from their legal guardian *
What is HPV?
HPV is a very common virus that affects both men and women; approximately one in four people are infected in the United States. About 14 million people, including teens, become infected with HPV each year. While most strains of the HPV virus resolve spontaneously, there are a few dangerous HPV strains that are known to cause cancer in both men and women. Every year in the United States, HPV causes 30,700 cancers in men and women, including genital warts, oral cancer, and cancers of the cervix and penis. Approximately 75% to 80% of the population will contract HPV in their lifetime.
The HPV vaccination is currently the only immunization available that prevents these cancers from occurring!
