Call 215-746-3535 for information, support, to schedule an appointment, and to speak with an on-call provider.
If you need medical care when our office is closed:
- Schedule an online appointment for the next business day.
If your problem is not severe and you just want to make sure you are evaluated soon, you can request a sick visit with a Student Health and Counseling primary care provider.
