Services of the University Physician are available on a part-time basis only. The University Nurse Practitioner is on duty from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Appointments are required for visits to the Comprehensive Counselor, except for emergencies. In case of illness on weekends, notify the Head Resident in each residence hall.
