The University Health Center (UHC) strives to meet your healthcare needs in a reasonable time frame. Every attempt is made to provide the earliest available time based on urgency and the student’s class/work commitments. Most students can be seen for an illness or injury within 24 hours of their request. Routine preventive care appointments may require longer.
UHC is committed to seeing all patients in a timely manner so that a long wait is not experienced. Most appointments are 30 minutes in length. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled time to complete or update paperwork, call if you need to cancel your appointment, or keep us informed if you can not arrive on time. Late arrivals may be asked to reschedule. All students must present a current Montclair State University ID and their health insurance card at the time of the visit.
Scheduling an Appointment
Telephone number: 973-655-4361
It is important for students requesting an appointment to state clearly the reason for the visit so the appointment can be scheduled with the appropriate clinician. All information is kept confidential and front desk receptionists are trained to understand your specific health care needs.

All medical records at the UHC are kept strictly confidential and follow the recommended guidelines of HIPPA and FERPA. Information about your care is not recorded on any University records nor can any information be shared with other individuals, including a parent or guardian without a written consent from the student. The only exception to this confidentiality regulation would be if a student was deemed unsafe to him/her self or others. This policy applies to all care provided at the UHC including sexual assault response services.
For all campus emergencies, contact University Police at 973-655-5222 for EMS response.
