To maintain the safest environment for our patients and staff, we have temporarily adjusted the normal operation of the Health Center. Despite COVID-19, Bentley remains committed to providing an accessible, equitable, and inclusive environment for all students. If you need assistance accessing any of our services, we are here to help. We will return to normal operations as soon as it is deemed appropriate by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control.
The Health Center is closed for medical care during the summer season. The health center is working remotely to assist with administrative questions during the summer due to the COVID-19 pandemic. For assistance from Monday to Thursday during the hours of 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., please email us at email@example.com. Our office, like other university offices, will be closed from Friday through Sunday until mid-August 2020. For faster response time and international students, please email our office. We are unable to call back International phone numbers.
Students that live off campus and are experiencing an emergency should call 911. Students that are living on campus that are experiencing an urgent or emergency concern should call University Police at 781-891-3131.
