Helping you to be healthy, body and mind. 

Here at Stephens, we pride ourselves on offering a wide range of health services to our students.  

Stephens College Health Care Plan 

Stephens is proud to offer limited healthcare services to all of its full-time students. The Stephens College Care Plan is the result of a partnership between Stephens College and Boone Medical Group-Central, a highly respected local medical group just steps away from campus in a nearby medical park. The plan covers treatment for minor illness and injuries (and flu and allergy shots) at no cost. Transportation is available if needed to ensure your health and safety. 

Fitness Center

Stephens has an on-campus workout room conveniently located in Stamper Commons next to the Student Union. The fitness room includes weights, a Stairmaster, treadmills, stationary bikes and other aerobic equipment. Stephens also has an agreement with the University of Missouri that allows our students to join the Mizzou Rec Complex at the same semester rate that Mizzou students pay. Commonly rated the best student rec center in the nation, the Mizzou complex features multiple swimming pools, a full schedule of classes, and yes, a distinctly co-ed environment. (And we run a shuttle back and forth to make it convenient!).   


The Stephens College Counseling Center offers free confidential counseling sessions to undergraduate students. Services are provided by either licensed counselors or supervised counselors-in-training. To make an appointment please call the Counseling Center at (573) 876-7157 or email

Outdoor Activities

Stephens College is a smoke-free campus, ensuring the health and well-being of all of our students and employees.
