Note: There is NO emergency room facility in the University Health Center. In the event of a life-threatening emergency call 540-568-6911 from on-campus or 911 from off-campus.

Urgent Care is an option for students who have certain urgent medical needs. These include conditions that require prompt attention rather than waiting for an appointment or conditions that are best handled through that facility due to location and provider specialization. Examples of medical problems typically treated in Urgent Care include:

  • Cuts/injuries that may require stitches
  • Minor injuries including muscle or tendon strains, ligament sprains and bone injuries. On-site x-rays are available if needed.
  • Vomiting for more than 24 hours
  • Acute allergic reactions (trouble breathing, hives, lip/tongue/throat swelling)
  • Urinary tract infections in females (If other women's health issues are occurring please make an appointment with our Women's Health Clinic.)
  • Ingrown toenails (Please note that due to limited treatment availability for this service, students are encouraged to call ahead to ensure timely care.)
  • Abscesses or boils

There are common medical conditions such as fever, sore throat, upper respiratory illness, headache, abdominal pain, chest pain, or pain in other areas of the body that are best evaluated and treated in our General Medicine Clinic. You can make an appointment through MyJMUChart; appointments are typically available within 24-48 hours (Monday-Friday). We also have self-care guides which are helpful for students with common illnesses.

If you are unsure if your condition meets Urgent Care criteria please call 540-568-6178 and press option 2. We will help you determine which location will best suit your needs.

The Urgent Care entrance is externally located on the corner of the Student Success Center at the intersection of Mason Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Way.
