Sexual and Reproductive Health Visits
Ready for an IUD or contraceptive implant?
During a sexual and reproductive health visit, a student can speak to staff and peer advocates about sex, pleasure, concerns about sexuality, gender identity, and relationships in a supportive and non-judgmental environment, and to learn about and get connected to other resources on campus.
These visits are confidential and HIPAA-compliant.
Students come to discuss:
- Birth control options
- Emergency Contraception (“morning after pill”)
- Pregnancy testing and options
- Pregnancy termination
- Gynecologic health
- Sexually transmitted infections
- Anatomy and physiology (menstrual cycle, conception)
- Pleasure and communication
- HIV testing and treatment
- Identity-affirming peer support
- Anything else on students’ minds
Sexual and Reproductive Health Visits are available to any currently enrolled Columbia University student at the Morningside/Manhattanville campuses, regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation.

Dropping in for STI testing support? The advocate can order the appropriate screening tests and direct you to the Columbia Health laboratory at John Jay Hall, 3rd Floor. Be prepared to bring your insurance card with you if you are not enrolled in the Columbia Student Health Insurance Plan.
About peer advocates
The Gay Health Advocacy Project (GHAP) and Women’s Health Advocacy Project Peer Advocates are undergraduate, graduate, and professional school students from across Columbia who undergo intensive training and are supervised closely by professional staff.
Advocates are HIPAA-certified and required to uphold the strictest levels of confidentiality. In the rare case that a student recognizes an advocate, a different advocate will be made available.
A number of advocates speak second languages, including Mandarin.
