Chapel is an integral part of the Judson University experience, and is required of all students. Chapels normally run from 10:00 to 10:45 a.m. on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Typical chapel content ranges from scriptural exegesis to issue-oriented presentations to mini-concerts by guest artists to student-led praise and worship services. The wide range is implemented so that the name of Jesus will be magnified and so the body of Christ as represented by the students, faculty, staff, and administration of Judson might be inspired to love Jesus more passionately, encouraged to trust Him more completely, and challenged to serve Him more faithfully.

Students who are full-time traditional students need to attend 25 chapels per semester in order to pass the chapel component of their Judson University curriculum. Students who do not meet this criterion receive a failing mark for the semester. Questions regarding chapel policies may be directed to the Chapel Office, ext. 1570.

Health Services

Before entering Judson University, students are required to have a physical from a doctor dated within one year prior to the first day of classes. Proof of state required immunizations is required by the Illinois Department of Public Health. These include the date of the last Tetanus booster and two dates for the Measles/Mups/Rubella immunization. Records of the physical examination and immunizations must be submitted to Health Services prior to Registration. These records are retained in Health Services. Students who do not meet medical compliance by the first day of the beginning of classes will have a HOLD placed on their account and they will be removed from their classes. Students with HOLDS on their accounts are unable to add/drop classes. They are also prohibited from registering for the following semester. There is a $35 late processing fee for incomplete medical records 30 days after Registration.

Health Services, located in the Wellness Center at the University Center, is equipped for routine health and first aid treatment. The Campus Nurse keeps regular (part-time) hours (Mon-Thurs 8am - 4pm, Fri 8am - 12pm). She consults with the Campus Physician who underwrites the standing orders. The Campus Physician is available for one hour each Thursday to see ill students. Resident directors are also trained in first aid and CPR. For after-hour non-emergency care, the student should phone their resident director. For after-hour emergencies, students should phone Campus Safety at ext. 9999 or (847) 622-9999.

Parents are notified in case of serious illness or accident.

All students are automatically enrolled in the Judson University Health Insurance program unless proof of other insurance is provided to the HC by filling out an insurance waiver form and providing a copy of the front and back of their insurance card. This must be done within 10 days of the start of classes.

Athletics and the Fitness Center

The Robert D. Lindner Fitness Center provides the entire Judson community with a wide range of opportunities to improve and maintain physical fitness.  A full schedule of intramural programs is provided. Please contact Nancy Binger, Director of Athletics and Enrollment.


The Judson University campus facilities are reserved for the use of Judson University students, employees, their guests and alumnus. In order to use the facilities of the Fitness Center, everyone must show a Student ID or Judson pass. Parents are responsible for the actions of their children.

The Fitness Center is open daily. Hours are posted in the Fitness Center. Students have first priority for the use of the Fitness Center and organized intramural programs have precedence over informal recreation. Faculty and staff members may use the Fitness Center but should not interfere with student activities.
