Students are invited to self-schedule appointments online with the Patient Portal. Or students can call us, email, or drop by to schedule an appointment. We are co-located with Health Services in Mallary Hall. In some cases, you might be referred by a parent, a coach, or a faculty member. If you feel your situation is urgent, please call us. If it is an emergency, call Campus Police or 911. Should this happen outside of normal business hours, please call your local crisis number or 988.
