The urgent care staff is committed to providing patients with quality, convenient and affordable care. Medical staff consists of a board-certified family medicine physician, two physician assistants, registered nurses, and medical assistants.

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


Appointments are required and can be made by calling the Nurse Advice Line (NAL) at 512-475-6877and pressing 5 during the hours listed above.

During your call, a nurse will triage your symptoms, review your health history and work with you to decide whether 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 (evenings, weekends, and holidays), the line is answered by St. David’s Hospital triage nurses. These nurses can give medical advice but are unable to schedule appointments with UHS or with the UHS urgent care.

If you are experiencing a medical emergency, call 911 and go to the closest ER. Learn more about medical emergencies and after-hours care.

Charges and Insurance

There are charges associated with your visit. However, we believe that finances should not prevent students from getting necessary healthcare. Learn more about charges and insurance in relation to UHS services.

During Your Visit to the Urgent Care Clinic

Patients are usually seen in the order of their arrival. However, sometimes patients must be prioritized based on the severity of their symptoms. Therefore, someone who arrives later may be seen sooner because of the urgency of their condition. If your medical condition does not respond to treatment or is beyond our scope of care, the physician will refer you to another appropriate healthcare facility such as an emergency room.

Sensitive information may be discussed during your visit to the urgent care clinic.
