The CSU Health Network is moving into the new CSU Health and Medical Center at College Avenue and Prospect Road in mid-June. To facilitate the move, all student medical, counseling, and health education and prevention services will be closed from Friday, June 16 through Friday, June 23. Access to the CSU Health Network Portal, the online connection to the electronic health record, will be unavailable starting at 5 p.m. on Thursday, June 15.
All services will reopen at the new location at 8 a.m. Monday, June 26.
“We chose this week to move because it is historically one of the weeks in the year with the lowest demand for our services,” explained Anne Hudgens, executive director of CSU Health Network. “We also realize individuals may need care during the move, and have made every effort to make our clients aware of alternative services available in Fort Collins.”
During the temporary closure, any students who would normally receive medical services at Hartshorn Health Center should visit an urgent care provider – information about local urgent and emergency care providers is available at health.colostate.edu/after-hours-emergency-care. If you are enrolled in the Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP), call AmeriBen at (855) 258-2656 for a referral before seeking services. This will ensure your deductible is waived if seen during normal business hours throughout the move.
Students needing counseling services during this time can call (970) 491-7111 to speak to an on-call counselor.
Students are encouraged to plan ahead for prescription refill needs. The CSU Health Network Pharmacy can not process, transfer, or fill prescriptions during the temporary closure. All prescriptions, including refills, must be filled and picked up by 4 p.m. on Thursday, June 15. Contact the pharmacy at (970) 491-1402 with questions.
“We are excited about moving into CSU’s new home for health, and look forward to a smooth transition from Hartshorn and Aylesworth, for both our staff and our clients,” Hudgens added.
Meet the new CSU Health and Medical Center
An open house will be held on Saturday, July 29, 3-5 p.m. at the center to introduce the Fort Collins community to the wide range of services available to the public.
Representatives from all members of this unique and innovative building partnership, including CSU Student Health Network, UCHealth, Associates in Family Medicine, Poudre Infusion Therapy, Columbine Health Systems Center for Healthy Aging, and Kendall Reagan Nutrition Center, will conduct building tours, as well as answer questions and provide information about the services provided to everyone in the community.
An additional campus open house and student celebration event will be held in mid-September.

The four-story, 113,000-square-foot building is owned and operated by CSU and is conveniently located at the eastern gateway of campus at 151 W. Lake St., on the northwest corner of the intersection of College Avenue and Prospect Road.
