Health Center - Student Life - Defiance College

Health Resources

Defiance College does not currently have an on-campus health service option; however, there are a number of health care options available within a short drive of Defiance College. These medical facilities provide a wide variety of services that benefit needs of our students. 


Activate Health & Wellness Center

Activate Health & Wellness Center is located directly across the street from the College at 800 North Clinton St, Suite B. We have developed a program that will allow Defiance College students to use this center for:

This is a great option for students who don't have easy access to their primary care physician at home or are managing chronic illnesses - and it's within easy walking distance if a student doesn't have a car on campus. Once they pay the center enrollment fee, students may utilize the center year-round, including during winter and summer breaks.

Please note: This is NOT health insurance. If students need to see a specialist, be admitted to the hospital, have tests run outside the center, etc., these items would not be covered and would need to be applied to your family's medical insurance.

Terms of Enrollment:

Cost of Enrollment: 

Enrollment prior to September 1st = $504.00.

If enrolling after September 1st, the cost of the coverage is pro-rated at $42.00 for each month of coverage after the date of enrollment.
