The Health Center operates primarily on an appointment-based system.
We strongly encourage patients to make an appointment before they arrive.
Same day appointments are often available and can be made by calling 301-314-8184 between 8:00am and 4:00pm. Some appointments can be made online. Please note: Fees apply to missed appointments or late cancellations.
Updated Fall 2021: In order to comply with the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) COVID-19 Healthcare Emergency Temporary Standard, when you arrive at the front entrance of UHC, you first will need to self-screen for possible COVID-19 symptoms. If you have any of these symptoms, you will be asked to proceed to the testing tent, located next to the UHC, to obtain a rapid COVID-19 antigen test. Results are typically available within 15-20 minutes, and you will receive a text message and email when they are complete. With a negative test, you may then enter the building. If you test positive, further instructions will be provided to you by a nurse.
For this reason, please allow ample time for testing and for your appointment at the UHC.
If you are experiencing severe pain, bleeding, shortness of breath, chest pain, or other signs of severe distress, do not attempt to make an appointment via the web. Call the University Health Center at (301) 314-8184 or come in to be triaged.
If you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, dial 911.
