Prescription Delivery to Campus and RX Transfer
Health Services partners with a local retail pharmacy, the UPMC Community Pharmacies, for medication delivery to campus.
Medications prescribed by Health Service's providers will be electronically sent to and delivered the same-day by the UPMC Community Pharmacies, unless otherwise specified by the student.
Students on various existing maintenance medications can have their prescriptions transferred from their home pharmacy to the near-campus UPMC Community Pharmacies while residing on campus or commuting from a local living arrangement. These medications will also be delivered to Health Services. Please fill out the prescription transfers form for prescription transfers.
