UHS and CAPS prepare for move

June 05, 2008

University Park, Pa. -- Staff in University Health Services (UHS) and the Center for Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) are busy packing for the move from Ritenour Building to the new Student Health Center this week. The move will take place Friday, June 6, through Sunday, June 8. Both UHS and CAPS will be closed during the move.

UHS clinical services will re-open at 10 a.m. on Monday, June 9, for urgent appointments. Students, faculty and staff experiencing a medical emergency should continue to call 911 during the move. The telephone advice nurse is available 24/7 (including the weekend of the move) at (814) 863-4463.

CAPS will see patients for crisis and triage on Monday as they set up the new offices. The CAN HELP line is available 24/7 (including the weekend of the move) at (800) 643-5432 for students in crisis. 

In addition, beginning at 5 p.m. on Thursday, June 5, and continuing through the afternoon on Monday, June 9, UHS and CAPS staff will be without e-mail, which will cause a delay in e-mail responses.

The new Student Health Center is adjacent to the Eisenhower Parking Deck and the Bank of America Career Services Building off Bigler Road. The Campus Loop stops on Bigler Road just south of the Student Health Center.

Six parking spaces in the north bay of spaces (closest to Eisenhower Road) on the ground floor of the Eisenhower Parking Deck have been reserved for short-term use by students, faculty and staff for prescription pick up. All  users are required to have the vehicle's 4-way flashers operating and are limited to a maximum of 30 minute parking during the reserved hours of 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.  

The first space closest to the exit lane is reserved for urgent-care access to the Student Health Center. A placard must be obtained from the check-in desk, and displayed on the dash of the vehicle for legal parking. The urgent-care space is reserved Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.

The next five spaces are reserved for short-term use (including prescription pick-up) at the Student Health Center. Parking in these spaces is restricted to 30 minutes maximum, and the vehicle's four-way flashers must be operating.

These five spaces are reserved from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.  After 5 p.m. the five short-term spaces would be open for use by other vehicles with a current Penn State parking permit properly displayed.
