Student Health Center
Flu activity typically peaks in the U.S. between December and February but can begin as early as October, which is why we recommend getting your flu vaccine soon. If you are returning home over mid-semester or Thanksgiving break, consider visiting your doctor’s office, local health department, pharmacy, or urgent care clinic to get vaccinated.
If you are interested in being vaccinated now; contact Norwich University Health Services at 485.2552 to schedule an appointment. Visit the CDC website for more information regarding the 2014-2015 flu season. Stay well!

The Student Health Center, also referred to as the “Infirmary,” is located in Marsilius Hall on 63 Crescent Ave, upstairs from Green Mountain Family Practice (GMFP). Both the infirmary and GMFP are operated by Central Vermont Medical Center. Students have 24/7 access to a health care provider, including three board-certified family physicians, a physician assistant with years of military experience and highly competent registered nurses and support staff.
Norwich Student Health provides comprehensive medical services to students similar to what they would receive at their primary care office, including X-ray, labs and orthopedic care. Additionally, there are several overnight beds for students that are deemed too ill to remain in the barracks or dormitory.
Routine appointments, nursing and overnight care are provided free of charge to Norwich students. Our clinic offers many over-the-counter medications to our students free of charge, as well. Labs, equipment and procedures are billed through your insurance by our affiliate, Central Vermont Medical Center.
The Infirmary is open 24/7 except during school breaks. When there is not a nurse on duty, there is a house resident that can always contact the on-call physician. You may see our nurse on a walk-in basis between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m., or you may make an appointment with the physician assistant (appointments available between 9:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.).
Have an Emergency?
Our clinic is equipped to manage most medical emergencies/urgencies that arise. We provide similar care to an urgent care center at much lower cost to Norwich students. Unless you or your friend is not breathing, has a bone sticking out or is missing a body part (in those cases call 9-1-1), come to our clinic first. We work closely with Northfield Ambulance Services and the local Emergency Department at CVMC. So let our well-experienced and highly trained staff medically assess and treat you or decide if you need a higher level of care.
