Health Services

Stamps Health Services is here for you. The health and wellness of the Georgia Tech community remains our first priority. 

In-person and virtual appointments are available to students.

We will provide a separate treatment and waiting space for patients having symptoms associated with Covid-19 and use telemedicine when appropriate. Appointment schedules will be adjusted to limit the number of people in waiting areas, and all front-facing service areas will have plexiglass installed to promote social distancing.

CARE Center

All staff will be able to continue to serve students in their current physical space, both in person and virtually.

All staff and clients will wear masks, and in-person appointments will be staggered to reduce the number of students present in the center at one time. Plexiglass will be installed around the reception desk.

For more information, please visit the CARE Center website.

Counseling Center 

Clients will be offered the option of face-to-face counseling appointments that ensure social distancing, or they will be offered a telehealth appointment. Those who choose a face-to-face appointment will be required to wear masks and asked to maintain a 6-foot distance from others.

All in-person appointments will be staggered to reduce the number of students present in the center at one time. We will manage the number of students in the waiting room to ensure social distancing. Counseling Center workshops and outreach presentations will be hosted in sufficiently large spaces or virtually, depending on the specific needs of the requesting campus partner.
