Urgent Care

Urgent care services are available for students that have urgent medical conditions. Students can walk-in without an appointment 8am-4pm Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and 9am-4pm Tuesdays and Thursdays to receive treatment for minor injury care, such as:

  • Stitches
  • Sprains
  • 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.

If you need urgent care, and it is after our normal business hours, visit one of the following healthcare centers in Harrisonburg:

Where to go

The University Health Center is located in the Student Success Center at 724 South Mason Street on the corner of Mason Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Way. Please check-in 15 minutes prior to your appointment. 

There is a drop-off circle at the Urgent Care entrance; bus stops are at the Student Success Center, Miller Hall, and the corner of Mason Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Way; bike racks are located at the Urgent Care entrance and both Student Success Center entrances. Patients may call 540-568-6178 for a parking code to use in the pay-by-space level (bottom-level) of the Grace Street Parking Deck.

What to bring

  • JACard
  • List of medicines you are currently taking

Health insurance

The UHC currently does not accept any insurance as a form of payment. If there is a charge for any service rendered, the student is responsible for payment at the time of service.

Fees for your visit

There is no fee to see a UHC provider. Services such as lab tests, vaccines, allergy injections, and international travel consultations do have fees.  Late arrival to appointment, no-show, or less than one-hour cancellation notice will be subject to a fee. Here is a list of all our services that include a fee.

Payment options

  • Cash
  • Check (made payable to JMU)
  • Declining balance on JACard (usually referred to as FLEX)
  • Discover, MasterCard, or Visa credit card in your name

Patient rights & responsibilities

The University Health Center strives to make its programs and services as accessible and inclusive as possible. Please let a staff member know if accommodations are needed or if the University Health Center is difficult to access for any reason.
