Our campus is well-lit, with lights in parking lots, in areas with heavy
landscaping and trees, and along high-traffic pathways. There are six
emergency phones strategically located throughout campus. These
phones are connected directly to the University Police.
Emergency phone locations include:
Northwest side of Simmons Parking Lot
Behrens & Lange Resident Hall Parking Lot
Southwest corner of University Police Department
Northeast corner of Dyess Welcome Center
Northeast corner of Ferguson Residence Hall
Inside Physical Therapy Building on the north side of campus
Student Health Services
The Student Health Office is located in Moody Center Room 208 and
is staffed by a registered nurse Monday - Friday from 8 am – noon and
from 1 pm – 3 pm during long semesters. During summer semesters,
the office is open Monday – Thursday from 8 am – noon and from 1 pm
– 2 pm. Services are free and include assessment of minor illnesses,
first-aid, and over-the-counter medications. The student may see the
nurse on a drop-in basis. There is no physician on campus. The nurse
can assist the student in securing a physician’s appointment off campus
should the student need to see a physician.
The flu vaccine is available during flu season for a nominal fee.
Students needing allergy injections may receive them in the Student
Health Office with permission from the student’s allergist.
It is important that your student have a copy of his or her insurance
card (front and back). It is good to tell your student to carry the copy
in his or her wallet should the student need to see a physician while at
college. You might want to explain to your student that he or she may
need to pay a co-payment for medical appointments and prescriptions.
Hardin-Simmons University does not offer an insurance plan for
domestic students. However, the nurse has websites of some college
health plans should you desire that information.
