Health Care

All students are expected to be covered by their own health insurance plans during the period that they are with the Middlebury Language Schools.

For medical emergencies call 911. Afterwards, please call Mills College Public Safety at 510.430.5555 or x5555 so that they can direct medical personnel where to go on campus when they arrive.

For all other health care, Middlebury at Mills uses Golden Gate Urgent Care, a comprehensive facility nearby in Oakland. More information is available at An appointment is not necessary for urgent care.

You can be taken to Golden Gate Urgent Care free of charge by contacting your School’s Bilingual Assistant.  They have pre-filled taxi vouchers for your use.


Before the pharmacy will deliver your medication, you must call the pharmacy with your insurance and payment information. Plan ahead—they can provide same-day delivery if you call early. You may also transfer a prescription from your home pharmacy to a Mills College area pharmacy. To do this, contact the pharmacy of your choice to make those arrangements.
