Free Condoms


Wear One Campaign

Recreation and Wellness has partnered with Ottawa County Department of Public Health to provide free condoms to GVSU students while increasing awareness and promoting acceptance of condom use by college students.  Our goal is to help reduce STI/D's in our community.  At GVSU, 74% of students are sexually active.

Many local health centers have stopped distributing condoms due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services has developed a program to ensure that people in the community are still able to get condoms for free and without having to leave their homes. To order condoms, please send an email with your name and mailing address to MDHHS-FreeCondoms@Michigan.gov and MDHHS will mail condoms for free directly to you.
