Blood drives are a lifesaving tradition at Washington University in St. Louis, and we invite you to get involved.  Our blood drives are sponsored in partnership with the American Red Cross and Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center.

On-Campus Blood Drive

We will be hosting an on-campus blood drive on March 30, 2021 from 9am – 6pm at the Athletic Complex. Donations are by appointment only and must be made directly through our donor sites.

Make an appointment:

Please review the donation process before your appointment.

Both blood banks have taken measures to ensure the health and safety of donors, including temperature screenings, distancing donor beds, and extra sanitation. We recognize the importance of maintaining a blood supply, especially during this time of crisis. If you are healthy and able, we hope you will consider donating. The blood banks are available to answer any questions.

Note: WashU blood drives adhere to university and public health guidelines and policies. Participants must align with current guidelines and policies at the time of the event, including but not limited to masking, physical distancing, hand hygiene, and self-screening.
