Appointments

Student making an appointment

All visits to the Student Health and Wellness Center are by appointment only. Appointments are scheduled on the basis of availability and the preference of our students.

If you choose to walk in without an appointment, we will do our best to accommodate you. Please know that there may be lengthy wait times and there is no guarantee that we can see you the same day.

Scheduling an Appointment

The services of the Student Health and Wellness Center are available to eligible students only.

Due to privacy regulations, students are asked to schedule their own appointments using one of two methods listed below:

  • By phone at 410-516-8270
  • In-person, by visiting our office

Same-Day Appointments

Same-day appointments can be scheduled beginning at 8:30 a.m. of the day you’d like to be seen. It’s best to call as early in the day as possible, as our appointments fill quickly. While we work with students to accommodate their schedules, it may be necessary to miss class if you are ill and need to be seen by a provider on the same day.

Saturday Appointments

Saturday appointments are reserved for sick and injured patients only and scheduled on a first come, first served basis. No routine appointments are available on Saturdays.

Saturday appointments are available during fall and spring semesters from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. No Saturday appointments are available during holiday weekends, intersession and during the summer.

Please note that not all services are available on Saturdays.

Appointment Adjustments

Please be prompt for your scheduled appointment to complete the check-in process, receive your vitals and complete any appointment specific forms. If you are 10 minutes late for your appointment, we will do our best to fit you into the schedule. However, out of fairness to other students, you may be asked to reschedule your appointment.

At times, you may need to cancel or reschedule an appointment. If this happens, we ask that you do so in a timely fashion so that we may be able to not only accommodate you, but also the other students we serve.
