To access your Student Health Portal 

The Health Center (TCHC), located in Wheaton Hall, offers health care for all Trinity students enrolled in at least 2 classes. The center is licensed by the state of Connecticut as an Outpatient Clinic and is a primary care office, similar​ to your home physician's office. Urgent and emergent care is referred off campus to local providers.  We are affiliated with Connecticut Children's Medical Center and can coordinate subspecialists with home providers as needed. 

TCHC charges for care using a fee-for-service billing model. There are charges for office visits, laboratory services and pharmacy items.  Students MUST present an insurance ID card at all visits.  If no card is available at the time of the visit, TCHC will file a claim with the company identified in the waiver process and all unpaid charges will be applied to the student's tuition account for payment.

Our Mission:

The Mission of the Trinity College Health Center is to promote health and wellness in the Trinity student body.  Wellness denotes more than physical wellbeing; it incorporates psychological, emotional, spiritual and social components. Wellness is not simply the absence of illness, it is choosing and demonstrating behaviors that enable one to enjoy optimal experience by making informed lifestyle choices with regards to; a nutritious diet, physical fitness, safety, sleep, the absence of substance misuse, healthy relationships, effective stress management and effective communication of feelings and needs.

Working with local specialists, other departments, faculty, staff and families to promote wellness and remove barriers to appropriate care, Trinity College Health Center staff provides accessible non-urgent/non-emergent care within an institution of higher education where students’ active participation in their own health care is emphasized and expected.  Our staff is committed to teaching students to navigate in order to get what is needed from the local health care system and self-care/treatment to care for their bodies, minds, and spirits in an intentional and preventive manner in hopes each student can maximize their educational experience and achieve their highest potential. ​
