Health Education

Through Health Education, we strive to help students gain knowledge and skills to make proactive decisions, promoting their health and well-being.

Emergencies & After Hours Care

We have a responsibility to assure that quality health and medical services are available at the Center during hours of operation and adequate services are accessible to students 24 hours a day through community resources.

In case of an emergency call campus police at 814-949-5222 or 911. The Penn State Altoona campus police officers are trained first responders on campus and will assist with crisis or medical emergency needs.
