• Health & Wellness

  • The waiting room of the Student Health Services office.
  • We provide medical, psychological, and wellness support services to our students year-round. The mission of Student Health Services is to promote the health and well-being of students to foster their learning and success.

    Through high-quality, comprehensive, holistic healthcare and support, we help students become thoughtful health consumers and advocates for their own well-being and that of others.

    Counseling Services

    Sometimes you need to talk to someone who will listen in a supportive and nonjudgmental manner. Our counselors are here to help students clarify issues and explore feelings and to discuss problem-solving strategies. We also offer individual mindfulness sessions, Problem Management Plus sessions, Ear Acupressure Kits, and a variety of support groups.

    Health Insurance

    The Student Health Insurance Plan is an integral part of the university's efforts to promote the well-being of our students. All eligible students need to enroll or waive the plan by the waiver deadline.


    All degree-seeking students are required to meet the university’s immunization requirements for measles, mumps, rubella, and meningitis ACWY.

    Suicide Prevention

    If you or someone you know is feeling suicidal, you can get help by calling the Suicide Prevention Life Line at 1.800.273.8255 or going to your nearest hospital emergency department. If you would like to talk with a counselor, visit the Student Health Services portal to schedule a telecounseling appointment.

    Student Support & Advocacy

    We work with students who are struggling with nonacademic challenges, distressing experiences, and crisis situations by providing support and advocacy and connecting students to resources in and outside of the university.

    HIV/AIDS Prevention & Services

    We provide resources and programs that can help prevent transmission of and infection with HIV. We ground our services in harm reduction, with a nonjudgmental, sex- and body-positive framework, and we focus on reducing risk and supporting positive health changes.
