Visiting Campus Health or finding after-hours care

Your health is our top priority. By visiting Campus Health when you have a medical concern or are feeling sick, you can quickly get seen by a provider, get to feeling better, and get back to focusing on being a college student.

Appointments are strongly recommended. Walk-in appointments will be accommodated on a first-come, first-served basis and will be given the first available appointment time for that day. We usually can get you in the same day or a nurse may triage your concerns to determine the urgency if there are no same-day appointments available.

To schedule an appointment, please call 317-274-8214.

If you become ill or are injured, and you need medical care that cannot wait until Campus Health opens the next business day, please visit an emergency room or immediate care facility. See below for locations near the IU Indianapolis campus.

Sometimes, your health concerns are bigger, immediate, and require a quick decision. Knowing when to call 911 or when to visit an emergency room is key. Here are some instances when you might seek those options.

  2. Experiencing chest pain with shortness of breath, nausea, and/or sweating
  3. Loss of consciousness
  4. Uncontrollable bleeding
  5. Fractures

If you are an incoming student—or a parent of one—it will be important to ensure you have everything you need. Here are some tips to make your medical care a priority and ensure an easy transition to campus.

  1. Check to see if a physical exam is required prior to attending classes.
  2. Make sure you know the name and dose of any medication you take and have an adequate supply to get started.
  3. We experience every season in Indianapolis, so be able to list all your allergies.
  4. Be able to provide proof of vaccinations based on the requirements of IU Indianapolis and the school/program in which you are enrolled.
  5. Call your health insurance provider to ask about coverage and co-pays when visiting the Campus Health clinic.
  6. Know where the Campus Health clinic is located on a campus map. (Hint: Look for Lockefield Village.)
  7. If Campus Health is closed, do you know where to go? Locate other clinics for immediate or urgent care.
  8. Being able to handle fevers, sprains, or minor ailments can help you in college and in life. We recommend brushing up on your basic first aid knowledge.
