General Information, Location and Hours of Operation


Dickinson College has developed and coordinated numerous campus and Carlisle Community resources which are available to help maintain student health and treat various physical and psychological concerns. 

The Student Health Center is located at the corner of Cherry and Louther streets.  The Center is located in the extension to the Kline Center next to the Fitness Center.  The facility operates like your doctor's office at home, so please call and make an appointment. Most students are seen the same day they call.  The Health Center is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 - 4:30 (except Tues. closed from 1:00 - 2:00), and open Saturdays from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. Once a month the Center is closed from 8:30 - 10:00 for a Division meeting. The dates will vary, so please call for an appointment before coming over. Call as early in the day as possible to secure an appointment the same day.

Hours of operation during the summer months vary.  Please call the office for details.

When the Health Center is closed. If you need medical care or advice when the Health Center is closed, you can call our 24/7 nurse advice service called NurseLine by dialing their toll free number 866-409-1859. The nurses who will take your call can determine the most appropriate level of care and can advise you. If you need to go to the emergency department, and you are on campus, NurseLine will connect you to Public Safety, or you can call them directly by dialing ext. 1111, or from your cell 717-245-1111. The Carlisle Regional Medical Center ER is located just 2 miles from campus at 361 Alexander Spring Road (on the corner of Alexander Spring Road and Sprint Drive).

Another resource when we are closed is U. S. Healthworks, a walk-in medical facility  just a few miles from the town square located at 1124 Harrisburg Pike (an extension of Hanover Street).
