After Hours Advice

If you become ill at night or on weekends when the SHC is closed you have several options:

Self-Care Room

The Mary Gilson Self-Care room is located on the first floor of Lee Hall. This is open during the hours that Lee Hall is open and is stocked with common cough, cold and pain medications to help you treat yourself as you would at home. You may get self-care advice here.


After Health Center hours Call 540-741-1000 (a local call) and speak with a registered nurse at HealthLink. There is no charge or cost to you for this call.


If your problem is more serious and needs immediate help, talk to your resident advisor.

Campus Police

If your problem is even more serious, call the campus police:

  • 540-654-1025 regular calls
  • 540-654-4444 emergencies
