They’re in good hands
Your student may not be living under your roof anymore, but we know their well-being is as important to you as ever.
From exceptional medical care and mental health counseling to recreation classes, safety resources, peer advocates and more, the UW offers a breadth of resources to keep our students healthy and well cared for.
You can help your student stay well by listening to their concerns and encouraging them to seek support when they need it.
A safe return to campus
Preventing the spread of COVID-19 remains a top priority for the UW. The university will require students and employees to be vaccinated by autumn quarter. Most in-person instruction and activities will resume this fall.
Here when they need us
Mental health is not one-size-fits-all. That’s why the UW offers a variety of services to meet students where they are. Individual counseling. Group therapy. Drop-in workshops. 24/7 crisis services.
