Services Provided

The UHS urgent care clinic is for students with medical conditions that require prompt evaluation or who need to be seen before the next available appointment.


Make your appointment by calling the 24/7 Nurse Advice Line – 512-475-6877 and pressing #5 on Monday-Fridays from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. During this call, the nurse will triage your symptoms, review your health history and decide if you should come to urgent care, schedule an appointment at UHS, care for yourself at home or go to an emergency room.

When UHS is closed, the 24/7 Nurse Advice Line is answered by St. David’s Hospital nurses. These nurses can give medical advice but are unable to schedule appointments with UHS or with UHS urgent care.
