Pharmacy

The Syracuse University Health Services pharmacy is a full-service EPCS certified pharmacy providing a wide selection of prescription medications, over-the-counter medications, vitamins, dietary supplements, and pharmaceutical education and counseling. The pharmacy accepts prescriptions from both Health Services and other health care providers and participates with most insurance prescription plans. If you have a prescription from home you would like us to fill, please have your provider fax, phone or electronically prescribe a new prescription to the pharmacy. New York State only allows the transfer of one refill at a time from an outside pharmacy. Depending on state laws you may lose all of your refills.  Pharmacy charges can also be billed to the Bursar account.

Pharmacy hours during the academic year are:

  • Monday, Tuesday: 8:30 AM to 7:00 PM
  • Wednesday-Friday: 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM
  • Saturday: 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM
  • Sunday: Closed

Pharmacy hours during the summer are:

  • Monday-Friday: 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM
  • Saturday & Sunday: Closed

Here are a few reasons we think the Health Services pharmacy is a great option for students:

Convenience:

We’re located right on campus, an easy walk from the residence halls, and in the same building as all of the Health Services providers. If you’re seeing a provider at Health Services, you’re just steps away from the pharmacy. If you’re short on cash, you can bill your SU bursar account, at which point the charge is handled like other university fees like tuition.

Focus on Students:

The pharmacy is here for you! The pharmacy has been serving students at Syracuse University for over 50 years. Our staff has over 25 years of experience in pharmacy practice and has a firm grasp of the unique health care issues that face students today. We work very closely with the medical staff at Health Services to make sure that prescriptions filled here are optimized for efficacy, appropriateness and affordability.  We also stay involved in the campus community by speaking to student groups, mentoring pre-professional student workers and volunteers, and developing affiliate relationships with other institutions with pharmacy programs.

Price:

The pharmacy does its best to keep prices affordable. Many prescription and nonprescription items are significantly cheaper than at a traditional retailer. Our not-for-profit status enables us to buy many commonly used items at a significant savings. You may be able to save a dollar or two after a 20-30-minute bus ride to a big box store, but most of the time we’re very close in price to even the “big guys”. If you have prescription insurance, please see our FAQ’s for your prescription filling options.
