If you are experiencing a life-threatening medical emergency call 911 or go directly to your nearest Emergency Room (ER).

The Student Health Center is closed to in-person services at this time. However, we ARE offering a Student Health Clinic Health Advice Line. If you are a currently enrolled student and would like a phone consultation with a Student Health Clinic Registered Nurse, please leave a voice mail message with your name and call-back phone number at 619-388-3450. We will be checking messages hourly throughout the day during our normal business hours. We are unable to return calls left after hours or on weekends/holidays. If you have an urgent health need, please call your Primary Care Provider, local community clinic, or urgent care center. 
Student Health Clinic staff are working to develop further clinic, healthcare, and COVID-19 information via a variety of online platforms, including telemedicine capabilities. Please check this website frequently for further details, and follow us on Instagram @sdcitystudenthealth.

If you are ill with fever, cough, shortness of breath, or other respiratory symptoms that may be symptoms of COVID-19, please call your health care provider or clinic or Emergency Room prior to arrival, whenever possible. This will allow proper screening for testing when appropriate, health care advice, referrals for in-person visits, and instructions for self-isolation or self-quarantine.
Please see additional info on Covid-19 below.

Accidents and insurance

If you have an accident on campus, come to A-180 to get care. In addition, the Student Accident Insurance Plan provides coverage for on-campus accidents. All claims are made through the Student Health Clinic, Room A-180. Please file a claim with our office as soon as possible after the accident. All enrolled students are eligible. This insurance is secondary insurance. Medi-cal or private insurance is billed first.



For a campus medical emergency:

  • Call 9-1-1 and/or College Police Dispatch at 619-388-6405 (ext. 6405 from a campus phone.)
  • District Police are the first responders for campus emergencies. They are CPR certified with defibrillator (AED) access and best direct the paramedics to the victim.
  • All on-campus accidents or injuries should be reported to the Student Health Clinic as soon as possible to document the incident should insurance coverage be required.
  • For more information about safety at SDCCD, go to: http://police.sdccd.edu.
