How it Works

The walk-in clinic for urgent issues operates on a first come, first served basis.  In order to be seen, students must present at the clinic in person; we cannot give drop-in appointments over the phone. Medical Services operates walk in clinics for urgent issues daily from September though April. The walk in clinic for urgent issues closes from May through August.

The hours for the walk in clinic are as follows

September through April

Monday: 9:00 am to 12 pm; 1:00 pm to 4:30 pm and 5:00 pm to 7:30 pm or at capacity
Tuesday: 9:00 am to 12 pm; 1:00 pm to 4:30 pm and 5:00 pm to 7:30 pm or at capacity
Wednesday: 9:00 am to 12:00 pm; 1:00 pm to 4:30 pm or at capacity
Thursday: 9:00 am to 12 pm; 1:00 pm to 4:30 pm and 5:00 pm to 7:30 pm or at capacity
Friday: 9:00 am to 12:00 pm; 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm or at capacity

Holiday Closures: Health Services is closed for all statutory holidays

All Health Services’ walk-in clinics are high volume. We do our best to meet the needs of all students, but there may be times when we reach capacity and won’t be able to see any more patients. When this happens, we will still work to provide health service to all patients requiring immediate emergency care or we will redirect students to alternate walk-in clinics in the community.

As walk-in spots fill up quickly, it is important to arrive at the clinic as early as possible to maximize your chances of being seen.

If you need health care after hours or on the weekend, please see After Hours and Weekend Health-Care Resources.

What to Bring

If coming to Health Services for a walk in appointment, students are required to take a number, complete the registration forms and be seen by a triage nurse. Students must present their valid Queen’s student card as well as either their provincial health care card or their University Health Insurance Plan (UHIP) card. If you do not bring your card, you will have to pay for the visit. Please see the section on Health Insurance for more information.

Medical Notes

Medical notes are given at the discretion of the doctor or nurse and cannot be written for a past illness. Permission to be excused from classes and exams rests solely with the faculty or department.
