We offer the following services FREE to students:

Sexual health supplies:  male condoms, female condoms (FC2), lubricant, dental dams, and pregnancy tests

Menstrual hygiene products: tampons, pads, menstrual discs

"What the Health" peer-health advising sessions

Interactive presentations and workshops
