Students living at the residence halls at the Chicago Campus should follow these steps:
- Online Resources: Many health insurance plans provide “nurse on-call” or web-based medical services. Students and parents are encouraged to become familiar with resources provided by their insurance carrier that can provide assistance during an illness.
- Communication: Report any serious illness or accidents to a Resident Assistant (RA) or professional staff member in the building.
- Transportation: If you need to go a hospital and you are not so ill as to warrant an ambulance or you do not have a friend to drive you, the RA on duty will call a cab for you. For insurance reasons, residence hall staff is not permitted to drive students to the hospital, but may accompany you in a cab or ambulance upon your request.
- Follow up with your RA as soon as you are feeling better.
Students who have a medical or psychological condition that may require assistance while living on campus should notify their RA and/or the Counseling Center (for psychological conditions only). While confidentiality remains tantamount, it is important that the residence hall staff is aware of personal needs and ways they can assist if a concern or crisis arises.
