    For the 2020-2021 academic year, Student Health Services will provide telehealthcare appointments. Virtual appointments can be scheduled on the Student Health Services portal. If virtual care is not appropriate for your needs, our staff will assist you in finding local in-person healthcare.

    Counseling Services

    Sometimes you need to talk to someone who will listen in a supportive and nonjudgmental manner. Our counselors are here to help you clarify issues and explore feelings and to discuss problem-solving strategies. We also offer group counseling sessions.

    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. See the University Health Plans site for more information about plan details.

    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.
