The Health Center operates primarily on an appointment-based system so we strongly encourage patients to make an appointment before they arrive.

Same day appointments are often available and can also be made online. These appointments open up 12 hours before the appointment time. You may also call 301-314-8184 between 8:00am. and 4:00pm to schedule your visit. Please note: Fees apply to missed appointments or late cancellations.

If you are experiencing severe pain, bleeding, shortness of breath, chest pain, or other signs of severe distress, do not attempt to make an appointment via the web.  Call the University Health Center at (301) 314-8184 or come in to be triaged. 

If you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, dial 911.
