Immunization records must be returned to the University Health Center (UHC) prior to matriculation. Orientation is a great time to turn this in. You will not be able to register for the next semester's classes until your immunization compliance is verified.
The University Health Center is open from 8 a.m.-5 p.m Monday through Friday. If you are sick, hurt or have any health issue, call or stop by to make an appointment to see us.
Only you can make an appointment to see us. Appointments are encouraged. We accept walk-ins and will make every effort to provide timely access to care.
University Health Center (UHC) is not an Emergency Department if you have a medical emergency call 911
If you feel you need to be seen for a non-emergency when we are closed and you cannot wait until we are open again you can go to:
Centra Southside Community Hospital Emergency Department
Centra Medical Group
Primary Care Provider
Urgent Care Center
All visits are confidential. There is no blanket release form for any medical information. If you want us to share information with your family you must sign a release form for that visit only.
There is no charge for copays related to your office visits. Your Insurance will be billed. You should have a copy of your health insurance information if prescriptions, lab tests, or referrals are needed. Please notify staff if you do not what a claim to go to your insurance company or you are uninsured.
You will be seen by a Provider who can prescribe medications you require.
If you take medications regularly, you alone are responsible for them. You should consider having a lockbox for them in your room. The only personal medication kept at the University Health Center is Allergy serum administered by University Health Center.
We recommend that you bring a first-aid/self-care kit to school. For suggestions check out the Student Survival Kit page.
