Purdue University -


PUSH is located at 601 Stadium Mall Dr. across from The Armstrong School of Engineering. There is limited parking in the lot behind the building (on University & Sixth Street). Several CityBus routes run directly behind the Health Center on University Street. The Gold Loop bus makes stops directly behind PUSH. More information regarding all campus bus routes, stops, and time can be found HERE. Parking at PUSH is very limited and is controlled by the university’s parking and traffic office. We do have several designated spaces that students may utilize during their visit to the health center. Student Health is not responsible for any fees incurred by a student for parking tickets or towing fees.

Medical Clinic

Monday through Friday: 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM, by appointment and walk-in, if available

PUSH Extended Care

Extended Care is a walk-in service that is offered after PUSH closes to appointments in the afternoon. In addition to providing medical care, Extended Care also provides care for minor injuries when the Medical Clinic is open as well as after hours. Extended Care hours during the week are: Monday – Friday 8:00 AM – 8:00 PM. Extended care is also available Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 AM – 6:00 PM. Extended Care services will be billed to the student’s insurance with their signed authorization.

*Please note that our hours change during semester breaks, holidays, etc.

After Hours Care

In the event a student has a life-threatening emergency, the student should call 911, both on campus and off campus. Purdue University has two ALS Ambulances available to assist students in the event of a medical emergency. After hours care is provided by an area hospital off campus.

All After Hours urgent care and hospital services are billed to the student.

If it is after hours and your student is trying to determine if he/she needs to seek out emergency care for an illness or injury, a nurse call service may be available through your insurance company to assist in helping him/her make a decision about self-care or emergency care. If available, that telephone number would be on the back of his/her insurance card.


PUSH does not provide routine transportation for ill or injured students. If a student calls from a residence hall or apartment and feels too sick to walk, drive, or take a bus to the Student Health Center, we encourage the student to have a friend transport them or they will need to call 911. In some situations, your student may be referred to a specialist by a PUSH provider, if needed transportation to that appointment is available through PUSH resources. If your student has a disability, please contact the Disability Resource Center for more information on how they can help with accommodations.
