Emergencies and After-Hours Crisis Response

The Student Health Center is not an emergency facility.

In a life- or limb-threatening emergency, dial 911 to reach Tuscaloosa Emergency Medical Services, or go to the DCH Emergency Department.

The Student Health Center is closed on The University of Alabama holidays and hours of operation are sometimes altered. These adjusted hours are posted on the website and on signs throughout the SHC building.

DCH Regional Medical Center is located on University Boulevard, less than one mile from the center of campus and only two blocks from the edge of campus and the SHC. When a student receives care at DCH, the staff at DCH often work closely with the SHC staff to ensure that the student receives appropriate care.

For urgent mental health concerns when SHC is closed
