Student Health and Safety

Most students receive their health care at the University's Student Health Center. The Student Health Center offers students a broad variety of programs and services including primary medical care, psychiatry, dental care, sports medicine, physical therapy, allergy services, nutritional counseling, travel medicine, and health promotion. Laboratory, pharmacy, and x-ray services are also available. For information about HIV testing, consult the Campus AIDS Resources.

For assistance in dealing with mental and emotional health issues, the University's Counseling and Testing Center is located on the second floor of the Student Health Center. The University also operates an after-hours Crisis Line staffed by professional counselors. All University students have access to the Crisis Line when the Counseling Center is closed

The University provides a number of resources to enhance students' personal safety around campus. The University Police Department provides campus emergency phones, lighted pathways, campus patrols, and safety escorts. The University also operates a Safe Ride Shuttle Program that provides students with free and safe rides home.
