Your health is important, and we’re here to make sure you get the care you need. Our on-campus clinic can provide you with medical care and education on a variety of health concerns.

For COVID immunization for the campus community, book an appointment online and select the provider “Immunization, COVID".

Same-day urgent appointments can be booked by calling 403.210.9355 to speak with a nurse who’ll determine if you need an in-person or virtual appointment.

Virtual appointments aren’t set for an exact time, however any availability constraints are noted for the physician and an approximate appointment time is set. We’ll let you know if the physician will call you in the morning (9 a.m. – noon) or afternoon (noon – 4:30 p.m.) on your appointment day. 

Out-of-province students must make an in-person appointment and bring an out-of-province health card. Quebec residents will need to pay for the service and arrange for reimbursement through Quebec Health Care.

UCalgary staff and faculty with an urgent concern can call 403.210.9355 to arrange an in-person or phone appointment.

Please note that traditional walk-in clinic services are currently suspended.

When these services are no longer suspended, UCalgary community will be able to access our walk-in clinic for urgent or unexpected illnesses or concerns. 

When operating, the walk-in clinic is open Monday – Friday from 9 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Walk-in services may close earlier depending on volume.

For chronic concerns, your family doctor can provide the best standard of ongoing care.

  1. Is walk-in right for you?

    Our walk-in clinic is for health concerns that need to be addressed urgently and cannot wait for an appointment.

    Even when the walk-in clinic is operating, to ensure that your time with the doctor is maximized and your wait times are kept at a minimum, please consider booking an appointment whenever possible.

    Clients using walk-in clinic for non-acute issues may be asked to book an appointment and return later.

    Please talk to our reception staff to find out more.

  2. Booked appointments

    Booked appointments are for medical concerns that may require a longer appointment or do not need to be addressed urgently.

    Booked appointments are available for University of Calgary students only.

    See "Medical services for UCalgary students (and their dependents)" below for more information.

    Please note that Alberta health care is required for virtual appointments. To register for Alberta health care, visit alberta.ca/ahcip-apply.aspx.

Made an appointment? Here’s some useful information to get ready for your medical services appointment.

  1. Before your appointment

    To get ready for your first medical appointment, make a list of medications, vitamins or herbal supplements and known allergies.

    Check that you have your emergency contact’s current contact information.

    If your information or your emergency contact’s information changes, let us know right away.

  2. Cancellation policy

    To ensure we can respond to all requests for appointments and to avoid fees, please give one full business days’ notice to cancel or reschedule an appointment. All missed appointments will now be subject to a no-show fee.

  3. Arriving at the clinic (for in-person visits)

    Bring your identification, provincial health care card, and any extended insurance coverage.

    Please do not enter the clinic more than five minutes prior to your appointment due to COVID-19 precautions.

    The first thing you will do, outside the front doors of the clinic, is complete COVID-19 symptoms screening form.

    Once entering the clinic, you may need to complete one or more intake forms.

Most of our medical and mental health services are covered by provincial health care. Massage and chiropractic appointments have reasonable fees. Any uninsured services (sick note, third party medical, etc.) also have fees. Give us a call at 403-210-9355 if you’re unsure if the service you’re accessing is covered.

Students without valid medical insurance can still access services, such as psychiatry, for a fee.

Our clinic accepts Visa, Mastercard, debit and cheque as forms of payment.

    Out-of-province billings are not permitted for virtual care visits unless you are a Northwest Territories resident. Please seek in-person medical care in your local area if you are currently living outside of Alberta.

    If you’re a Quebec resident, you’ll need to pay for your service and arrange for reimbursement through Quebec Health Care.

  2. International students

    International UCalgary students should verify they have valid medical insurance.
