UHC Business Hours
Walk-in Clinic Hours
The University Health Center staff partners with students to empower them to make informed choices by providing a holistic approach to student health, education, wellness and outreach services in a confidential, inclusive, and respectful environment.
The University Health Center is staffed by professional health educators, substance abuse prevention specialists, and a medical team of board certified providers who administer care in a confidential and professional manner. Five doctors with a combined 137 years of practicing experience, and six nurse practitioners and a physician assistant with 94 combined years of practicing experience, specialize in the healthcare of JMU students - and only JMU students. Plus, a dermatology physician assistant and a registered dietitian are on staff.
UHC hours are 8-5 Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and 9-5 Tuesdays and Thursdays, with walk-in hours for urgent medical care 8-4 Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and 9-4 Tuesdays and Thursdays.
The UHC is located in the Student Success Center at 724 South Mason Street. There is a bike rack and a drop off circle drive at the walk-in clinic entrance, bus stops at the Student Success Center, Miller Hall, and the corner of Mason Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Way, and patients can call 540-568-6178 for a parking code in the pay-by-space level (lower, second entrance) of the Grace Street Parking Deck.

The University Health Center will not provide students with excuses for short-term absences from class, labs, studios, exams, or deadlines due to illness, injury, or other UHC appointments. In the event of a prolonged illness or injury requiring medical attention and an absence of more than three days, the UHC can provide students appropriate documentation through the Dean of Students Office. The UHC cannot disclose if a student has been seen at UHC. The UHC will not release medical records to faculty, only to students. Responsibility remanded to and all decisions regarding the impact of absences on student grades, as well as any arrangements for making up work, rest with professors/instructors, department chair, associate deans, and/or deans. This policy reflects the confidentiality and privacy rights afforded UHC patients.
