Welcome to the Pharmacy at Student Health Services

Our pharmacy team is available five days a week to fill student prescriptions, provide drug information and answer health-related questions.

In addition, we offer a wide variety of over-the-counter (OTC) items at competitive prices.

Our location is operated by the OSU College of Pharmacy and we serve as a training site for pharmacy students.

Our mission

We are dedicated to providing quality assistance, recommendations, and counseling services on all health-related issues by direct interaction with our healthcare professionals.


Hours and phone

Find us on the first floor of the Plageman Building in room 108.
Call us at 541-737-3491.
As hours can change from term to term, please check our current hours before coming in.

Eligibility for care

At this time, services are available only to registered students. Please present your valid OSU identification card at each visit.

Over-the-counter medications

We carry a wide range of over-the-counter (OTC) medications, often at costs lower than what you’ll find in drug stores. These medications do not require a prescription.

We carry limited quantities and stock generics if they are available. Keep in mind that prices are subject to change.

Student discount program

Ask us about the student discount program!

You may pay less for over-the-counter medications or self-pay prescriptions than you would at a pharmacy in town.

Prescription Pick-Up for spring term 2020

When it’s time for you to pick up your prescription, a pharmacy staff member will deliver your prescriptions to an outside location for you to pick up. Please do not attempt to come into the Plageman building.

When you arrive in the SHS parking lot to pick up your prescription, please text 541-368-2197 (this is our Pharmacy software’s direct SMS text line) with the following information:  which door you’re at (Door A vs. Door B) + Student ID + your name.

Or call 541-737-3491 with the same information.

  • Copays will be charged to your student account
  • You will need to have a form of ID with you when you pick up – student IDs are the preferred form of ID
  • If you are having someone else pick up your prescription, you will need to call us ahead of time to tell us who that person is, and that person will have to have their own form of ID with them at pickup.

Payment and insurance

We accept most third party insurance plans. The first time you purchase a prescription, you will need to present your pharmacy insurance card. If you are enrolled in the university student health insurance plan, 80% of your prescription costs are covered.

Methods of payment

  • You may pay in full at the time of your visit by cash or check, or charges can be placed on your student account. We do not accept credit or debit cards.

Drug formulary

  • The prescription drugs we carry are determined by medications routinely prescribed by the Student Health Services medical staff. If we do not have an item you want, talk to one of our pharmacists.

The SHS Pharmacy now uses RX Local, an Apple and Andoid App to manage and refill prescriptions. 

Download the app for refills and reminders and integrated messaging.
