If you are sick and want to speak with a medical provider during UHCS hours of operation, please call 617.373.2772 and leave a message. A medical provider will call you back to conduct a brief assessment and make recommendations for care.

Should you or someone you know have a medical or mental health emergency, please call NUPD at 617.373.3333 (or 911 off-campus) or go to your nearest Emergency Department.


Mental health support is also available at any time from any location by calling Find@Northeastern at 877.233.9477.

During an initial phone appointment, a Mental Health clinician will assess your concerns, identify and address your immediate needs, review a care and safety plan and discuss options for further assessment and treatment. These options may include:

  • Scheduling a follow-up visit with a UHCS clinician for further support and assessment
  • Scheduling a medication assessment visit
  • Referral to ongoing treatment in the local community
  • Referral to a student support group at UHCS
  • Referral to ICare, an internet-based and mobile-supported self-guided cognitive behavioral intervention.
  • Other helpful campus resources and supports
  • Resources and self-care steps you may take to help manage your condition

Call UHCS during business hours if you have a concern that you feel should not wait for an appointment. In case of emergency, call Northeastern University Police Department emergency line at (617) 373-3333 or 911.
