In case of emergency

On campus?
Call 6-3333.

Off campus
Call 911.

Do you have an  health question that cannot wait until the next business day? Call the on-call health center clinician for advice at (781) 239-1948.

Urgent care is for health needs that cannot wait until the health center is open. For preventive services (asymptomatic screening, annual exams, work clearance exams,  vaccines etc. ) you will be charged out of pocket as licensed for urgent care services cannot bill out preventive services.

Reasons to use an Urgent Care Center:

  • the possible need for an x-ray
  • urinary pain with back pain
  • a deep laceration that may need stitches  
  • need for IV hydration due to severe vomiting, or unresolved high fevers.

Urgent care should not be used for preventive health services as your insurance will not be able to be used to pay for the visit. 

If you do go to the emergency or urgent care centers please let them know you are a Brandeis student and would like a record of your visit sent to the health center so we can provide informed follow up care. Your health treatment records are confidential and kept separate from your educational records.
