I Need Healthcare

University Health Services provides services to students and their spouses, domestic partners, and dependents. Call (413) 577-5101 for an appointment. Advance appointments are best for routine care and minor problems; same day appointments are for more urgent issues. If the health concern just can’t wait, the walk in clinic is open during health center hours. Patients who need to be seen in the walk-in clinic should join the virtual waiting room and may spend the majority of their wait in the comfort of  their own living space. Once called into the clinic, patients will speak with a nurse, who will help determine their needs. In a health emergency always call 911.

Questions? Call the Triage Advice Nurse, (413) 577-5229.
