In-Hall Health Resources

Sharps Containers

On-campus residents who need to dispose of needles or other sharps are now able to check out a personal sharps' container from their primary service center. Once the container has been filled it can be exchanged or turned in at the primary service center. We ask that all containers are returned at the end of the semester.   

There may be a variety of reasons students needs access to a sharps container. Examples of sharps include: Needles – hollow needles used to inject drugs (medication) under the skin. Syringes – devices used to inject medication into or withdraw fluid from the body. Lancets, also called “fingerstick” devices – instruments with a short, two-edged blade used to get drops of blood for testing.

Thank you to the Residence Halls Association, Council of Students with Disabilities, and Transcend for advocating that this resource be available to on-campus residents.


Menstruation Product Dispensers

Menstrual products are a basic health necessity and the lack of access to products can take a toll on the physical health, mental health, and education of university students. MSU recognizes this need and is pleased to help create an equitable environment for all students to feel empowered about their bodies and manage menstrual hygiene safely and with dignity. 

The MSU divisions of Student Life & Engagement (SLE) and Infrastructure Planning and Facilities (IPF) have complimentary menstrual product dispensers in women’s and all-gender restrooms on first floors (or nearest restrooms to the first floor) of student-facing buildings, including residence halls and on-campus apartments.
