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, during our summer hours.

Summer hours:
Monday–Thursday 7:45 a.m.–4:45 p.m.
Thursday 9 a.m.–4:45 p.m.
Friday 8 a.m.–noon
Closed for lunch 1–2 p.m.

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.
