The Student Health Center provides medical evaluation and care of student health concerns, both in an outpatient office setting, and an infirmary setting for round-the-clock care when needed. We strive to provide comprehensive primary medical care to W&L students.
Student Health and Counseling
University Counseling provides direct psychotherapy services, assessment of academic problems, and (with student consent) collaboration with faculty, administrative personnel, or parents to provide necessary supports for struggling students. Psychiatric consultation is also available.
Good health is essential to your academic success. Therefore, Washington and Lee University requires all full-time Undergraduate students with a minimum of 12 credit hours, International students and Graduate students to carry personal health insurance. If you do not currently have health coverage, you have the option of purchasing the Washington & Lee University sponsored plan insured with UnitedHealthcare.
The Office of Health Promotion provides students with information about alcohol and other drugs, sexuality issues including sexual misconduct and sexual harassment, nutrition, stress management, and mental health issues such as depression and eating disorders. The goal of the Office of Health Promotion is to encourage students to make safe choices by having science-based information.
This Health Library provides the Washington and Lee community with information and resources on the most important health issues to college students.
