COVID-19 Testing

Here's how to access Covid-19 testing on campus.


Psychiatric appointments are available in-person and by telehealth.

Please note that telepsychiatry is only available for students who are physically in Washington, DC, as our psychiatrist and psychiatric nurse practitioner are not licensed to offer telepsychiatry to students outside of DC. (Maryland and Virginia residents can be seen in-person, but not via telepsychiatry.) When scheduling your appointment, please let the Patient Service Representative know where you are currently located.

If you are out of state and have questions for your provider, please send a secure message to your psychiatric provider through the Student Health Portal. 

For psychiatry appointments, please call: 202-885-3380. (Please provide your First Name, Last Name, Date of Birth, and AUID Number). Before your scheduled appointment, you will be sent a secure message through the student health portal with instructions on how to connect for your telepsychiatry appointment. You can use any device to connect as long as it has audio and video capabilities.
