Emergencies

In the event of a medical emergency:

  2. Then, call Campus Safety & Security at 305-892-7011

If possible, bring your insurance information with you. The university is not financially responsible for your medical expenses.

Transportation can be arranged through Residential Life or Safety and Security.


Non-Emergencies

In the event of a medical problem of a non-emergency nature requiring a student to go to an off-campus medical facility, contact Health Services for a referral.

 

After Hours 

Students who are ill or in need of treatment after Health Services office hours or on weekends when the doctor is not available should seek treatment at a hospital or another area emergency room. Staff at the hospital will determine whether to bill the student, the student's parents or the insurance carrier for treatment. Transportation is provided. 

If possible, the student should bring along insurance information.


Severe Allergies

Students who have been medically identified as being prone to anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) may authorize the university to administer epinephrine (EpiPen®) in an emergency. Students should also be aware that, in the event that the university administers the student’s epinephrine in an emergency, the university may also call 911.

Students should provide a doctor’s letter or prescription notifying Health Services of their allergy and the need to administer epinephrine in an allergic emergency (please contact Health Services). In addition, students with allergies who wish to seek reasonable accommodations should provide documentation to the Center for Academic Support.
