As we approach break and the end of the semester, we want to make sure all students have access to the care and support services they need, wherever you are. Here are health and wellness resources that are available to in-state and out-of-state students.
All Health and Wellness departments will be closed Monday, Dec. 26 through Sunday, Jan. 1.
If you’re within the state of Colorado, you can schedule a telehealth appointment with Medical Services at CU Boulder.
Students who are staying out-of-state over break will not be able to schedule appointments with Medical Services. However, Medical Services can provide referrals for community providers.
You can get your prescriptions transferred to and from the Apothecary Pharmacy on campus, depending on where you will be over break. It’s a good idea to transfer prescriptions if you are anticipating needing a refill over break.

You can have your records sent to yourself as a secure message through your portal, or they can be faxed to a healthcare provider’s office. Be sure to include the full address, phone and fax number for where you want records sent.
