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 reserve "Same Day" appointments each day for acute care illnesses or acute injuries on our schedule. These "Same Day" appointments can not be released until 8:00 am in the morning, on a first come first serve basis. We do not open these times up in advance. 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.

Because these blocks of time have been specifically set aside for a same day illness, if you cannot to keep your appt, please call and cancel otherwise, there will be a $15 "No Show fee" put on your student account if you fail to show up for your same day appt. .

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.
