COVID-19 FAQs: Health and prevention

How does the University support me?

During the containment, which could be hard to live through, the Preventive Health Service of the University (SUMPPS) remains available for students for any concern, problem or advice regarding their health. Every student on campus can use this service.

A doctor and two nurses are physically present at the University in Mont-Saint-Aignan, square Emile Blondel, and a telephone helpline has been set up, from 8:45am to 5pm, for all students in need.

It is possible to call them to get advice, to be guided, or, in some cases, to consult.

Moreover, psychologists and a sophrologist are available by phone and on teleconsultation.  

Prescriptions for chronic treatments can be renewed by pharmacists and by the preventive health service if needed.

You can call the 02 32 76 92 92 or send an email to med.prev@univ-rouen.fr.

In Evreux, you can call the nurse for any advice: 06 47 70 46 54. Psychologist and sophrologist are also available on the phone.
