Needle Disposal Policy

Because of the potential for transmission of several infectious diseases and to protect the safety of students and staff, all students utilizing injectable medicines will be required to show evidence of satisfactory disposal of needles and syringes. The Student Health Center in Commonwealth Hall will provide free disposal of medical waste and will also provide sharps containers to store used needles.
