Emergency & After Hours Care

Same-Day Appointments on Campus

The Health Center and CAPS for Counseling Services can often accommodate same-day appointments. If you choose to walk-in for an appointment we will do our best to fit you into the schedule. However same-day appointments are prioritized based on urgency, so you may be scheduled for an appointment at a later time or referred to a community provider.

Medical Emergencies

On-Campus: 504-865-5911
Off-Campus: 911

An ambulance may be summoned for acute medical emergencies by dialing 911. State the condition of the person and the exact location. If you are in a residence hall, please notify a staff person immediately.
