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) Bring your Polar Express card for check-in. Students that arrive late for an appointment may need to reschedule.

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

We DO NOT accept refills over email. Refill requests need to be made 24 hours in advance by the person the refill is for by calling 474-7043. Your name, student id#, medication & number of refills requested is necessary for us to handle your request promptly. Please provide a good call back phone number.

We require a 24 hour notice for copying and releasing medical records. Please keep this in mind if you need your medical records sent or need a copy for yourself. Releasing any medical records from our facility requires written consent for release with your signature.

Spring Break March 17th - 21st,

Student Health will be open normal hours 3/17 - 3/20 and will be Closed on Friday, March 21.

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.

There may be times when all of our same day appointments have been taken depending on what time a student calls or arrives. When this happens, our staff does it's best to "work-in" students which is done at the discretion of our medical providers. This is not always possible on the same day. The student can choose to use a facility in the community or schedule for the following day if appointments are available.
