In the event of any possible life threatening medical or psychological emergency, you should seek immediate help from an area hospital. If you are on-campus, call University Police at 585-245-5222 and they will call an ambulance to campus. From off-campus, call 911.
In case of a non-life threatening crisis situation, Health & Counseling is staffed with clinicians (physician, licensed nurse practitioners, and psychologists) during the following hours:
Monday & Thursday, 8 a.m. – 7 p.m.
Tuesday, Wednesday, & Friday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
(We are closed Fridays, 9 - 10 a.m. for staff meetings)
Summers, Holidays, & Breaks: Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
In the event of a non-life threatening crisis situation occurring during these times, students may walk-in or call Health Services (for medical situations) at 585-245-5736 or Counseling Services (for psychological situations) at 585-245-5716. For more information about urgent care services, visit the Our Services pages for Health Services and Counseling Services.
During hours when Health & Counseling is closed, Health Services has contracted with Fone Med, a Nurse Advice Line, to provide consultation to Geneseo students. The registered nurses with Fone Med are available to talk with students to help them determine whether they need immediate medical/psychological intervention, should make an appointment with Health or Counseling Services, or if there are self-care strategies which they can appropriately use. The Nurse Advice Line is available for consultation about both medical and mental health concerns.
Students can reach the Nurse Advice Line simply by calling the Health Services phone number, 585-245-5736--overnight and on weekends callers will be given instructions to connect with Fone Med. Should you experience any problems with the forwarding service, you can contact Fone Med directly at 877-861-5005. Like any call to Health Services, there is no charge for utilizing the Nurse Advice Line. This service is available only to SUNY Geneseo students.
