First Aid

Note: All medical, psychological and other campus emergencies should be immediately reported to University Police. To contact University Police: call ‘911’ from a campus phone; call (323) 343-3700 from a cell phone; or use the closest emergency phone (“blue light,” non-dial, outdoor emergency phone).

First aid is defined as one-time treatment that typically does not require a physician, laboratory, X-ray, or pharmacy services (e.g., bandaid, ice pack). First aid services are administered through the Express Care Clinic.

Express Care Clinic (Walk-In)

Certain Student Health Center services (care related to more urgent medical or psychological concerns) are available on a walk-in basis through the Express Care Clinic. Students wishing to use the express care clinic should check in at the reception desk in the Center's first-floor lobby.

Please Note: Patients' medical concerns are evaluated by a screening nurse. Psychological concerns are assessed by a screening nurse or CAPS staff member. Students are seen by the Express Care Clinic provider or are given same-day or future appointments, as appropriate, based on issue of concern, illness/injury severity and availability of an appropriate provider.

Students with less urgent concerns are given a future appointment. Call (323) 343-3314 for information.
