Visit the Student Health Center

While Tulane Campus Health does not perform sexual assault forensic exams, it offers a wide range of student resources and support for student survivors of sexual assault. Campus Health is designated as a confidential resource, which means information you disclose will not be shared unless you provide permission.

  • You do not need to make a formal report or press charges to receive care.
  • Our health services are available to all current students.
  • Students on Downtown campuses may go to the Uptown campus to receive services.

The Student Health Center provides medical interventions and care following sexual violence but does not collect forensic evidence. If you have experienced sexual violence and would like forensic evidence collected, please read about sexual assault forensic exams here
