The UHS Urgent Care Clinic is for students with medical conditions that require prompt evaluation or who need to be seen before the next available appointment. To be seen in the timeliest manner and ensure that you are getting the most appropriate care for your condition, it's best to call one of our nurses on the Nurse Advice Line at (512) 475-6877 (NURS) before coming in.

To help you decide whether you should come to Urgent Care:

  • Call the UHS Nurse Advice Line at (512) 475-6877 (NURS) any time day or night, or
  • Go to the UHS Appointments desk in the SSB during regular business hours.

A nurse will ask about your health history and symptoms and work with you to decide whether you should go to the UHS Urgent Care Clinic, schedule an appointment at UHS, care for yourself at home, or go to an emergency room.

Typical conditions treated in the Urgent Care Clinic:

  • Wounds needing stitches
  • Allergic reactions
  • Wheezing or asthma not responding to medications
  • Persistent vomiting and/or diarrhea
  • Migraine headaches
  • Sprains, strains, and broken bones
  • Eye injuries

For severe or potentially life-threatening conditions, call 911 or go to a local emergency room. For more information, click Medical Emergencies at the top of the page.

When you visit the Urgent Care Clinic

Patients are usually seen in the order of their arrival. However, sometimes patients must be prioritized based on the severity of their symptoms. Therefore, someone who arrives later may be seen sooner because of the urgency of their condition.

If your medical condition does not respond to treatment or is beyond our scope of care, the physician will refer you to another appropriate healthcare facility such as an emergency room.

Charges

There is a nominal office visit charge for all UHS appointments. This charge is higher for visits to the Urgent Care Clinic on weekends and holidays.
