Husky Health & Well-Being

Husky Health & Well-Being offers a wide range of health and wellness services, from exceptional medical and dental care and counseling services, recreation classes, safety resources, peer health advocacy, trainings and more. Your student is automatically eligible for many valuable health services, which are available at no further cost to UW-Seattle campus students.

We invite our families to review the Husky Health & Well-Being Forms Page with their student. Here you will find any of the forms you may need in order to meet the immunization requirement, establish health insurance, establish medical care, request medical records, travel requirements and more.

Mental Health Resources

The Counseling Center is here to support students through one-time or on-going support, urgent help, individual or group therapy. The center partners with My SSP to give students access to real-time, confidential mental health and crisis intervention support, 24/7 and in multiple languages. All UW Seattle students who are in degree-seeking programs are eligible for counseling services.

LiveWell (Student Advocacy, Training and Education)

LiveWell is a starting point for students in need of consultation, assessment or intervention around issues affecting their emotional, physical or academic well being. Its dedicated staff members can connect students in need of support with the appropriate campus resources and help them navigate complex personal situations. We worked with our friends at Health & Wellness to develop the UW Parent Alcohol Guide, to share with our UW Family, this great tool to help with start a conversation with your Husky.

Medical Care – After hours options

Students with health care needs after hours can get prepaid medical advice from a nurse or visit an urgent care clinic. UW Neighborhood Clinics has several locations near campus.
