We ask that if you need to be seen, please call 859-572-5650 to schedule an appointment. Walk-in patients will NOT be accepted. Facial coverings are required.

If you need a medication refill, or you need to talk to a nurse about symptoms, or any other questions that can be done over the phone, please call 859-572-5650 between the hours of 8:15 am and 4 pm.

Counseling Services will be available by phone only

All face to face counseling services have been suspended as of Friday 3/20/2020.  This includes intakes, brief screenings, individual sessions, couple sessions and group therapy.  Phone consultations are available.   In the event of a crisis/urgent matter, a clinician will be available by phone during regular business hours (8:15 am-4:30 pm) at 859-572-5650.  For after hour psychological emergencies, please contact 859-572-7777. 

The Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) remains top of mind as a serious health concern around the world, and we are being vigilant as the situation evolves. The NKU team will continue to monitor coronavirus developments and will communicate any new information or recommendations.

Please visit the NKU coronavirus preparedness website for campus information and links to various agencies and offices, including the CDC’s website– the best source of up-to-the-minute information.

NKU health personnel will continue taking precautions and work with local and state health departments.

Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
