Transportation of Clients/U-NET

U-NET (University Non-Emergency Transportation) is one option of transportation to emergency rooms or medical/counseling clinics and hospitals in the local area, 24 hours per day within the limits of the transportation provider. This service is available for students living within the city limits who do not require (* note exception for Bella) assistance in walking to the car or boarding a wheelchair accessible van. Students arranging for their own independent transportation is typically the first preferred option as transportation remains the student's responsibility. U-NET (funded by University segregated fees) is provided as a courtesy service and availability is not guaranteed. The cost of the transport is billed to the University when the transport is arranged for and authorized by representatives of the following offices:

* Health Service - M-F. 8-4:30. *Counseling Service - M-F. 8-4:30.

Students living off-campus have access through the Health & Counseling Services during the hours listed.

* Residence Life Professional Staff - 24 hr. access for residents.

* On call person for the Sexual Assault Response Team (SART)- 24 hr.access for victims of sexual assault.
