Student Health Services (SHS)
Hours: M-F, 9:00 AM – 3:30 PM for telemedicine
Services: In order to support the health of our students, reduce exposure of students who are sick or at-risk due to other conditions, as well as protect the health of our staff, Student Health Services has moved to a telemedicine format. This service is available by appointment, Monday – Friday 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., to all TCNJ students currently taking classes. This will enable us to provide care to students during the current COVID-19 pandemic, from the convenience and comfort of their room/home. We are committed to maintaining the same level of evidence-based health care that we have always provided with in-person visits.

Telemedicine appointments can be scheduled by logging in to the portal, OWL (Online Wellness Link) at https://tcnj.medicatconnect.com/.

On-campus students: SHS has put together COVID-19 Care Kits for each residential student containing a thermometer, tissues, tylenol, decongestant, cough drops, a first aid kit, a sleep mask, ear plugs —- and sunscreen because we hope they will walk around campus and enjoy the beauty of a spring day at TCNJ – 6 feet apart from others, of course.

We will also be emailing residential students to update their medical history information in OWL so that we can identify those at higher risk for severe COVID-19 disease, and to inform them of our new telemedicine format.

Holly Heller, NP, has agreed to be the 24/7 point-of-contact for Residential Education & Housing pro staff should a health issue arise after hours.

SHS staff are working from home. Contact info: health@tcnj.edu
