CSU Health Network

Medical and mental support to students on campus

Happy, healthy students

Keeping you healthy on campus is a top priority. The CSU Health Network offers medical, mental health, education and prevention services for all students. You also have access to International Student Care Coordinators who are specially trained to assist international students with the American health care system. The group works to address your health care concerns, answer questions and connect you to the resources you need. If you do get sick, the CSU Health Center is here to help.

A number of immunizations are required. All are available at the CSU Health Center but immunizations are often less expensive in your home country than they are in the US. There could be a cost depending on your insurance.

We want you safe no matter where you go. Safewalk is a free service for students. They are CSU students who will walk with you any place on or near campus. Blue Light Emergency Phones are located around campus for communication with Campus Police, which can provide additional services such as personal escorts and building access assistance.

Food options for all appetites

CSU and the surrounding areas offer a variety of great eating options. On campus, choose from six dining halls and 18 restaurants offering cuisine from around the world.

One of the best spots to go and meet up with friends is INTO’s very own café, conveniently located near most INTO classrooms in Alder Hall.
