After Hours Medical Care

Students have 24/7 access to non-urgent medical care when Health & Wellness is closed by calling their main number which connects to a medical call center, where staff will conduct a phone assessment and make suggestions for additional care options, including a visit to an urgent care center or hospital, if appropriate.

Flu Clinic

Each year, the seasonal flu makes its way to campus resulting in missed days of work and classes. This virus spreads rapidly among students because of close living conditions, lowered resistance, stress, etc., and campus communities have the potential to face significant epidemics each winter.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that the seasonal flu vaccine is the single most effective method for preventing the seasonal flu.

Chronic Illness Care

Health Services provides medical care, education and support for students with chronic illnesses with a philosophy of helping individuals to self-manage while providing education and support so they can continue classes and daily activities and manage the changing emotions and symptoms which may be brought about by chronic illness. Education and information is free to the UNH community. Counseling is free to students who have paid the health fee and for a fee for students who have not paid the health fee.

How To Access:

Medical Accompaniment

Typically, an advocate will accompany a survivor of sexual assault to the hospital for medical care after the assault (specifically for a rape kit). This generally happens one of two ways: The survivor calls the hotline and decides to go to the hospital, at which point the advocate would meet the client at the hospital or at a determined location. A survivor is at the hospital and discloses the abuse. The hospital is mandated to call the local crisis center for services which will prompt an advocate to come to the hospital. The client can then accept or refuse services.
