After Hours Support

If you are experiencing a health or mental health issue and need to speak with someone immediately when SHACS is closed, please call SHACS main number at 641-269-3230. Follow the prompts to speak with a nurse or a counselor to discuss your concerns and questions.

The health or mental health professional you reach will ask you about your symptoms and concerns, collaborate with you in developing a coping plan, and make recommendations regarding the type and timing of treatment you should pursue.

If you aren’t sure if you need urgent care or not, this number is a good place to start.

Emergency Assistance

Call Campus Safety at 641-269-4600.

Depending on the urgency of your situations, the Residence Life Coordinator (RLC) on call may phone or visit you, or Campus Safety may arrive with emergency responders.
