Get Care at University Health Services (UHS) at UC Berkeley
A quick list of health resources for UC Berkeley students!
Schedule an appointment
Appointments are required for most medical services at UHS, although for urgent problems, UHS offers options including nurse advice by phone, day and night for students and SHIP dependents. If you arrive without an appointment, you will generally be scheduled and asked to return at that time or you may visit Urgent Care for sudden, serious and unexpected illnesses, injuries or conditions which require immediate medical attention.
