After Hours and Emergency Information
Student Health and Counseling is open 9 am - 6 pm Monday through Friday, with evening medical appointments on Mondays until 8 pm. The following is information about accessing services after hours. Students should take their insurance card with them whenever they access off-campus medical care.
Counseling Services After-Hours:
If you need mental health services after-hours, counselors are on-call 24 hours a day for emergency phone consultation (not during school breaks/summer). Access the on-call counselor by contacting Carleton Security (507-222-4444) and asking to speak to the psychologist on-call. Security will take your name and number (but ask no other questions) and the on-call counselor will call you back at the number you provided.
Medical Services After-Hours:
If you require emergency medical care, call 911 or go the Northfield Hospital Emergency Room. For non life-threatening emergencies, care is available at local Northfield clinics and the Northfield Hospital.
