Student Health Center

The Orange Coast College Student Health Center serves currently enrolled OCC students. The Student Health Center is financed by the health fee that all students pay each semester; it receives no other college or state funding. Students must be enrolled and be attending credit course(s) during the current semester and have paid the health fee to use the Student Health Center. Health insurance is not required to use the Center.

The Student Health Center is located off Fairview Road and Pirate Way, between the Peterson Gymnasium and Watson Hall. Please check the OCC website for hours of operation and telehealth options. Summer and winter session hours will be announced and posted prior to the beginning of those sessions.

Students may schedule appointments to be seen at the Health Center by calling (714) 432-5808. Every effort will be made to care for emergencies and mental health crises promptly. The many services the Student Health Center offers include medical and mental health appointments, as well as disease prevention and family planning services. The Student Health Center does not provide primary care services for ongoing medical problems, such as chronic illnesses or long-term mental health treatment.

If a student is injured on campus or in the course of a College-sponsored activity, the Student Health Center staff will assist the student to access the Coast Community College accident insurance policy.
