Urgent After-Hours Care

Emergency: 911

If you are experiencing an immediate or life threatening emergency call 911.

Free After-Hours Advice Nurse: 703-993-2831

If Student Health Services is closed and you have a medical concern, you may contact our free after-hours nurse advice line. You can receive advice about your concern, and the nurse can direct you to set up an appointment with Student Health or go seek immediate care.

You may also contact your primary care physician, urgent care facility, an emergency room, or call 911.

Local Urgent Care Resources

Several local Urgent Care Centers and Emergency Rooms are listed below. An urgent care center may be a good resource for non-immediate or non-life threatening concern when Student Health is closed. Remember to check the facility’s hours of operation.

If you have insurance, check with your health insurance provider for information about costs or co-pays associated with emergency room admission or care. For a current list of urgent care facilities which accept Aetna Student Health Insurance use the Aetna Doctor Finder search tool.

To avoid the Aetna Student Health Insurance Emergency Room co-pay, look for an Urgent Care Facility that is NOT a full-service emergency room.
