Health and Wellness


Office of Student Health

The health and wellness of each of our students is a top priority and the Yeshiva University Office of Student Health supports student health with a variety of initiatives.

Yeshiva University is taking the necessary precautions to ensure our campus community remains safe and healthy during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. For more information and to see our current policies, please visit our COVID-19 policy page.

Student Health staff reviews immunization history of entering students to ensure compliance with New York State Public Health Law, which requires that all students have proof of measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) immunization history and complete a meningitis acknowledgment form.

Please find the latest MMR Immunization/Meningitis Form here: YU Student Immunization Form

Completed forms should be emailed or faxed to the Office of Student Health:

Email: Fax: (646) 685-0395

The YU Counseling Center supports the psychological and emotional wellbeing of our students with a staff of qualified and caring counseling professionals. Learn more about the Counseling Center here.

Yeshiva University requires that all students enrolled for 6 credits or more have health insurance. If you are a US Citizen, you may be enrolled in a family or employer plan. If your plan has a network of providers in New York City, you can apply for a waiver. You will get an email sent to your student email account with instructions on how to access the waiver/enrollment form.

The deadline for the Spring 2023 waiver submission is March 3rd, 2023.

For domestic students who are not currently insured through family or employer plans and for international students, Yeshiva University has partnered with Gallagher Student Health to provide health insurance through Aetna that meets ACA and Visa Requirements. Note all plans must be Affordable Care Act (ACA) compliant.

Students in Online Degree Programs are exempt from/ineligible for the Yeshiva University Student Health Insurance Plan.
