We do our best to accommodate students around their class schedules, but there are times when we are not available when a student needs health care.
Below are facilities in the Fairbanks area that may meet these medical or counseling needs when the center is not available. Be sure to review your insurance plan for coverage prior to seeing a provider.
Fairbanks campus students
The UAF Student Health and Counseling Center offers after-hours counseling services via telephone for students who need immediate mental health care. The center employs a counseling service with professional counselors available to serve our students when we are closed for evenings, weekends and university holidays. For eligible students to access the service, call the Student Health and Counseling Center at 907-474-7043 and follow the instructions for connecting to the service.
Rural campus students
Rural campus students should call 855-510-5688 after hours to talk to a trained counselor. This service is only for urgent situations and is not for ongoing counseling needs. Please use your local resources for nonurgent and ongoing mental health issues.
