  • We are available Monday-Friday 8a-6p for Appointments and Walk-ins.
  • We are available on an urgent care basis after 6 pm.
  • A qualified health care provider is available 24/7 during semester hours.
  • Tuesdays from 8p-8am contact Public Safety to speak with the nurse on-call.

All Medical Emergencies, call Public Safety: 610-328-8333

Students with urgent medical needs will be able to contact the nurse on call by dialing security at 610-328-8333. Students will not need to share the concern they have with security staff. They simply have to say that they have a medical concern and would like to talk to the nurse on call. The student will give a phone number at which they would like to be contacted.
