Support UVA Student Health and Wellness

Every day, the Department of Student Health and Wellness (SHW) works to ensure and support the overall well-being of University of Virginia students.

Our department includes Counseling and Psychological ServicesMedical Services, the Office of Health Promotion, the Student Disability Access Center, and the Student Health Office of Research Excellence. Our new Student Health and Wellness building opened in the fall of 2022 with the goal of being:

  • 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 makes both our mission and our new building possible, and for that we are extraordinarily grateful. Student Health and Wellness is 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 a public health crisis like COVID-19. Our services were adapted and 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.
