Oglethorpe University expects all students to have their own health insurance. Although students are free to seek medical care wherever they choose, Oglethorpe University is partnered with SmartCare Urgent Care which is located next to campus on the corner of Hermance and Peachtree Rd., to provide an array of health services for students during the academic year. They have a physician on staff 7 days a week with extended hours. Each year students are encouraged to opt-into special terms of this partnership directly with SmartCare Urgent Care before the beginning of the academic year.

For convenience, the campus life office in the Turner Lynch Campus Center student commons area keeps a general first aid kit for student.
