After Hours Community Resources

We see students on an appointment basis. Our goal is to meet the medical and counseling needs of the UAF students and work with the student's schedule as much as we can. We are closed on weekends and follow the UAF Holiday closure schedule. There is a list on the Community Resources page for walk-in and after-hours clinics.


Students need to arrive 15 minutes prior to their appointment time. (ex: appt is at 9:00 am, student must arrive at 8:45 am) Students that arrive more than 5 mins late for an appointment may need to reschedule.

If you need to reschedule your appointment, please call us at 474-7043.

Because we are NOT a "walk-in" Clinic, we designate "Same Day" appointment times for acute care illnesses or acute injuries on our schedule every day. These times open at 8:00 am, in the morning on a first come first serve basis. An acute illness may consist of fever, vomiting or infection.  Please be specific about your illness and its severity so we can ensure enough time for you and the medical provider.

A Consent for release of information is required when requesting your records. Please allow 24 hours notice if you would like a copy of your records or need a prescription refilled.
