Student Handbook


A student should notify the Xavier University Police Department ("XUPD") or a University Official immediately in the event of personal illness or injury. If emergency health services are needed after Health Center hours, a Residence Life staff member or a XUPD Officer can contact the appropriate emergency or medical resources for assistance.

University employees cannot transport a student to the hospital. Any visit to the hospital will be at the student's expense. It is advisable for the student to check with their insurance agency to see if hospital visits are covered by their health care plan.

Students seeking medical care should consult their health insurance plan to identify the health care providers that are included in their particular plan. Xavier Health Services maintains a partial list of health facilities and resources in the Cincinnati community. Refer to Health Services web site:
