Urgent Care Services

Central Office / Urgent Care:
Galbraith Hall 190, (858) 534-3755, Building 141 on Campus Map
  • Urgent Care Hours: 8:00am-4:00pm
  • CAPS provides urgent care services for students who are in crisis and require same-day treatment. Students who request urgent services will be asked to complete necessary online forms.
  • While most students with urgent/same-day appointments will be seen shortly after completing check-in and forms, if there are many students in crisis, the urgent care counselor will prioritize which students will be seen based on the severity of concerns.

Concerns About a Student

Please select Messages from the left menu and follow the instructions. This is the only way to contact your counselor electronically. For all other communications, please telephone your Counselor.
  • Please note that that your CAPS provider may not access their electronic secure messages at regular times throughout the day due to appointments and other clinical duties. You may also leave them a phone message at the number they provided for you at your first meeting.
