There are options for victims/survivors of sexual assault and sexual violence to seek medical resources. Listed below are the most common options sought out by survivors.
Student Health Services can provide the following services for survivors of sexual assault and sexual violence:
- STI Testing
- Emergency Contraceptive
Survivors are encouraged to visit SDSU's Student Health Services at Calpulli Center if they have experienced an assault. Our medical providers will ensure the student receives appropriate medical care and will alert the police to the incident. Dependent on the nature of the assault and the timeliness of seeking care, the survivor may receive prophylactic treatment for STI's or pregnancy. Student Health Services will connect students with other resources on and off campus whenever necessary.
To make an appointment, please call 619-594-4325. You are encouraged to explain the nature of the appointment as this will allow Student Health Services staff to expedite the process and schedule an adequate amount of time for your care.
