Services Provided

If you are a Bates College student, you may visit Health Services free of charge when school is in session. Students with any illness or injury are urged to come promptly to Health Services.  All visits are strictly confidential and you will not be charged for the consultation. Laboratory tests and vaccinations may be billed.

Health Services is a place where students requiring care but not hospitalization may be seen for medical concerns.  In case of an emergency, students may be seen or taken by ambulance to Central Maine Medical Center.
