Urgent care services are available for students that have urgent medical conditions. Students can walk-in weekdays from 8am-4pm (9am-4pm Thursdays) or call 540-568-6178 and schedule an appointment to receive treatment for minor injury care, such as:
- Minor fractures
- Allergic reactions
Note: There is NO emergency room facility in the University Health Center. If it is an emergency, call 540-568-6911 from on-campus or 911 from off campus.
We will do our best to meet your urgent care needs; however, if you are in need of more assistance than what the University Health Center can offer you, we can refer you to a specialist in the area.
