The UCLA Ashe Center recognizes that health concerns don’t follow a campus schedule. Sometimes your student will need answers to their health concerns right away – and that can be in the middle of the night or while they’re off campus. Should the need arise, your student can contact the UCLA Ashe Center by calling (310) 825-4073 and selecting Option 2 to speak with in-house RN triage. After hours, all triage calls roll over to an outside NurseLine so your student can speak with a registered nurse at any time of the day or night to make more informed decisions about their health.
In the case of a life threatening emergency, your student should go to the nearest hospital emergency department: Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center Emergency Room (310-825-2111).
If an ambulance is needed: Call 911 or campus UCPD at (310) 825-1491
