The University Health Center provides an option to talk to a nurse on the phone during regular business hours for students who need help determining the best course of care for a medical problem.  This is a quick and accessible way to determine if making an appointment is the right decision or if self-care measures are appropriate.  

It isn't always easy to make these decisions, which is why our Registered Nurses are here to help.

Call 540-568-6178 and choose option #2.

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.
