Visiting Student Health

Students must bring their student ID card, insurance card, and prescription card each time they visit Student Health.

Making an Appointment

Students are encouraged to make an appointment when they need care at Student Health. If students have an urgent need and no appointment, a “triage” system is available, whereby students can see or speak with a care provider who will advise them, refer them for same-day care, or suggest a scheduled appointment.

Hours

Fall and Spring Semesters:

Weekdays – 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Summer Sessions and Breaks:

Weekdays – 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Location

Student Health is located at 400 Brandon Avenue. It is just off Central Grounds, between the South Lawn and UVA Hospital, at the corner of Jefferson Park and Brandon avenues. Parking is limited; handicapped parking is available for students with permits. University bus routes serving this area include the Green Route and the Inner/Outer University loops.

Confidentiality

A student’s medical record is confidential to the extent permitted by law and will not be discussed or released to anyone outside Student Health without permission of the student. This includes parents if the student is 18 or older.

Emergencies

In an emergency or life-threatening situation, students should call 911.

When Student Health is closed and a student needs to speak with someone about an urgent health concern, care providers are available through the answering service at 972.7004. Students should let the operator know whether they have a medical, gynecologic, or mental health concern, and they will be put in touch with the appropriate professional. Students may be directed by the on-call professional to the UVA Emergency Room or to a local urgent care center if care is required before Student Health re-opens. Students are responsible for any charges incurred at facilities outside Student Health.

Feedback

Student Health is always interested in opinions and concerns, and students and parents are welcome to email Student Health administration at studenthealth@virginia.edu.
