How do students get medical care after hours or on a weekend?

  • UHS is open during normal business hours, Monday through Friday.
  • We have a 24/7 nurse advice line and mental health crisis line for concerns that arise after hours. Call 608-265-5600.
  • If a student has an urgent health concern in the evening or on a weekend, they can call the nurse advice line or, if they are dealing with an emergency, they should go to a local emergency room. There are three Madison hospitals within a 10-minute drive of the UW-Madison campus. Students are responsible for their own transportation.
