Frequently Asked Questions


Are there 24 hour emergency services available to Carleton students?

There are no after-hour medical services provided through Student Health and Counseling (SHAC). Students may seek evening or weekend care at Allina Medical Clinic or at the Northfield Hospital. Carleton Security Services personnel are trained as medical First Responders and will assist with student emergencies 24 hours a day, and refer to ambulance or emergency room services as necessary.

If you need urgent mental health service, counselors are on-call 24/7/365.  For urgent phone counseling access the on-call counselor by calling SHAC at 507-222-4080 and pressing Option #2 during the voicemail message, or by calling 855-705-2479.

Please visit SHACs After-Hours/Emergency information website for more information.
