Every day, the Department of Student Health and Wellness works to ensure and support the overall well-being of University of Virginia students.
Our department includes Counseling and Psychological Services, Medical Services, the Office of Health Promotion, and the Student Disability Access Center, as well as the Student Health Office of Research Excellence and the Gordie Center. We look forward to the opening of a new student health and wellness building in 2021 that will be community-focused and open to students both as:
- a revolutionary student center actively promoting and educating about well-being; and
- an integrated and inclusive space to deliver our core prevention, medical, emotional, and disability services.
Philanthropic support helps make both our mission and our new building possible, and for that we are extraordinarily grateful. Student Health and Wellness is both caring for our students now and planning for the future—and a crucial part of that work is providing leadership to the UVA and Charlottesville communities during the current public health crisis. Our services have been adapted and are available to our students virtually, and the flexibility and swift response needed to address the pandemic cannot be underscored. Our passion is for our students. Our eyes are on the future. Join us.
