STI screening clinics

Taking care of your sexual health


Dalhousie Student Health & Wellness provides free and confidential STI screenings right on-campus to Dalhousie and King's students. 

Our nurses at the Student Health & Wellness Centre or at our mobile screening clinics can administer the following STI tests:

  • Males can be tested for chlamydia and gonorrhea through a urine test and/or a throat swab.
  • Females can be tested for chlamydia and gonorrhea through a vaginal swab test and/or a throat swab.

Drop by the Student Health & Wellness Centre during nursing hours or stop by one of our mobile clinics to get tested.

If you require anal swabbing or bloodwork for Hep C, HIV and syphilis, a doctor’s visit is required. Please contact the Student Health & Wellness Centre (902-494-2171) to make an appointment.

Why should I get tested?

The majority of STIs are asymptomatic, which means that there are no signs, but there are possible consequences, including:

  • Scarring
  • Urinary tract infections (UTIs)
  • Pelvic Inflammatory Disease
  • Infertility
  • Blood vessel, heart, eye or brain damage
  • Increased risk of acquiring HPV
  • Increased risk of cancer

Be proactive! 

  • Use condoms, every time (this includes for oral sex, too)
  • Get the HPV vaccine
  • Get tested regularly
