Safety of the entire NC State community is a top priority. Campus police patrol the campus 24 hours a day by vehicle and bike, on foot and horseback. If you're walking after dark, safety escorts are provided, and there are more than 400 blue-light emergency telephones throughout the campus.
While campus emergencies are nothing we anticipate, being prepared is the best plan of action. NC State wants you to be informed immediately of any crisis or emergency. That's why it's important that you register for Wolf Alert, NC State's Emergency Text Messaging service. Communications about an emerging crisis or emergency are also communicated in several other ways. Learn more how you and your parents can stay informed.
You can't focus on your studies when you're fighting a cough. NC State's Student Health Services is an affordable, convenient medical center for help with everything from allergies to injuries, physical therapy, flu immunizations and shots for international travel. The NC State Women's Center supports the health and safety of women.
The Student Health Center also houses the Counseling Center, a resource for students experiencing personal or academic concerns. Help is available for coping with anxiety, depression, relationship issues and substance abuse. Services typically are free for enrolled students—and are always confidential.

As a student enrolled at NC State, your prepaid health services fee will cover most routine visits to Health Services. Prescriptions and specialty services, like x-rays or laboratory tests, require a small fee. Learn more about health services costs.
