Student Health Link
SECURE MESSAGING: This service is mostly for University Health Services staff to contact you about confidential medical information such as lab results. Students can use it to send us messages about routine administrative questions (such as about health holds) or medication refill requests (for which you have been seen here for previously). It is not to be used for medical advice or to replace a medical visit.
As this is a new service, we would like any feedback so we can tailor it to make on-campus medical care as available as possible. Please use the secure messaging option to provide us with any suggestions or comments.
APPOINTMENT SCHEDULING (if not working, please call us during our normal business hours, 8 AM to 5 PM, at 860-832-1925, option 1.)
- Please refer to the instructions linked above for details.
- Self-scheduling should only be used for non-emergent problems.
- If you are experiencing a medical emergency, please call 911. If it is not an emergency but you need immediate medical advice when University Health Services is closed, please call your own primary care provider's office and ask to speak to the provider on-call. Many insurance companies now also supply 24-hour nurse advice lines. Please check your insurance company's website to see if yours offers this option.
Initially, we are limiting the types and times of self-scheduled appointments until we work out the kinks in the system. Appointments can be self-scheduled for the 16 reasons listed below and only in the morning for now.
