MSU is committed to providing a healthy campus climate for the overall wellness of each Spartan.

Primary health care for students

Olin Health Center — the primary health care facility for MSU students — is home to primary care, psychiatry, allergy/immunization, sports medicine and health education services. Laboratory, radiology, pharmacy and physical therapy facilities also are located at Olin. MSU students are not charged for the first three medical office visits of each academic year.

Students also have the option of receiving primary care services in the residence hall neighborhood clinics located in Brody, Holden, Hubbard and McDonel halls.

Counseling services

The MSU Counseling Center offers services that provide support for personal concerns such as stress, depression or relationship issues.

Health education resources

Many additional resources are available to students to address academic impediments, such as sleeplessness, stress and illness, as well as fitness, nutrition and sexual wellness to help students succeed at MSU. A full list of health education resources is available through Olin Health Center.

Tobacco-free campus

MSU is tobacco-free, a policy that aligns with our efforts to create the healthiest academic and workplace environment possible at MSU. Tobacco-free MSU FAQs, information about enforcement, copies of the ordinance, policy, toolkits and more are available at

Free menstruation products across campus

Students have access to complimentary menstruation product dispensers in women’s and all-gender restrooms on first floors (or nearest restrooms to the first floor) of student-facing buildings. In buildings where all-gender restrooms are not present, free menstrual products will be available in men’s restrooms. See the full list of buildings where dispensers are installed.
