UNM Student Health & Counseling (SHAC)

"It does a student body good!"

Emergencies / After-Hours Options

SHAC is not a provider of emergency medical care. A medical emergency is defined as “posing an immediate threat to life, limb, or body function.” In case of a medical or counseling emergency, dial 9-1-1 or go directly to a local hospital emergency room. For information, see After-Hours Options.
