Where do I go for health care when the Student Health Center is closed and I just cannot wait?
First determine whether your problem is an urgent one or an emergency. If you are not sure or need assistance with deciding what care you need, please contact our after hours nurse advice service by calling the Student Health Center at 585-475-2255 and listening for the nurse service option.

Typical "urgent care" problems include:
  • Minor injuries
  • Strains and sprains
  • Cuts requiring stitches
  • Ear, nose and throat infections
  • Respiratory infections-coughs/bronchitis
  • Mild asthma flare-ups
  • Bladder infections
  • Minor eye injuries and infections
  • Minor skin rashes
Should I let Student Health Center know that I needed urgent or emergency care?
If you use the community-based services listed above, call the Student Health Center on the next day it is open to discuss making a follow-up appointment.
