The Shepherd University Wellness Center will remain closed for the rest of 2020. We will reevaluate operations when our campus reopens early in the new year.

Shepherd University is making every effort to maintain its low COVID-19 positivity rate, which is much lower than that of the surrounding municipalities. The University’s primary mission is education. As a university facility, the Wellness Center will do whatever needs to be done to support this mission in order to allow our students, staff, faculty, and members of the community to return safely to campus in the spring semester.

Wellness Center is Now Opened to the Community

The Wellness Center is open by reservation only, through a reservation system we have adopted to assist with safe operations. We are not accepting guests at this time. Everyone must have a reservation before arriving to the Wellness Center.

We have updated our face-covering policy. All members must wear a cloth face-covering that is secure above the nose, around the ears, and under the chin.

Membership Information: Time missed while we have been closed has been added to your membership expiration date. If you have questions about your membership or would like to put your membership on a freeze, please call 304-876-5300 or email Katherine at
