Emergency vs. Urgency

Here is helpful information regarding Urgent Care and Emergency Care.

Transportation Options

If you are transported to the Emergency Room by United Ambulance, Bates College Security will provide an escort from the hospital when you are discharged.  You can reach Security and Campus Safety at 786-6254 or 7786-6111.
While many students have their personal vehicles on-campus, there remain many students who do not have access to their own personal vehicle or that of a friend. While CMMC Urgent Care (Auburn) and CMMC Emergency Department are very proximate to campus, we recognize that students may need access to transportation to get to and from the CMMC Urgent Care or CMMC Emergency Department. There are number of transportation options available:

Zip Cars

Students with a valid driver’s license can sign up to use the Bates Zip Car Program. For more information on
