Making an Appointment
There are several ways to access clinical care at UHS:
- Use myUHS, the secure access online appointment system. This is the most efficient way to schedule or cancel an appointment.
- Call our appointment line at 863.0774 and make an appointment. Same-day appointments are available for acute medical problems. Appointments for routine health concerns are generally available within a few days.
- Call 863.4463 and talk with an Advice Nurse if you are not sure if you need to see a clinician. The nurse will help you decide if your medical problem requires an appointment, or offer tips on self-care.
- Call ahead (863.0774) if you have a serious injury or condition requiring immediate attention. A nurse will evaluate your condition and if appropriate refer you to a clinician the same day. Students with more serious problems will be seen ahead of those with less serious problems. Students with medically urgent needs are seen immediately.
- When UHS is closed, you can find locations for urgent care (not an emergency) by searching the Web for "Urgent Care State College, PA." For transportation to urgent care, taxi services and CATA buses can be found with a web search for the State College region.
- For advice about a health situation, the Advice Nurse service is available 24/7.
