Health and Counseling Services Return to Campus

ALBANY, N.Y. (Jan. 28, 2019) – The ribbon was cut on the new Health and Counseling Services building last week, officially signaling the return of the full range of health and psychological services for students to a more accessible location on the Uptown Campus.

The state-of-the-art facility, located on the south side of Dutch Quad across from the athletic fields, houses Student Health Services, Counseling & Psychological Services and the Center for Behavioral Health Promotion and Applied Research. Designed to meet or exceed the gold standards for LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), the facility includes:

  • 19 medical exam rooms centered around a nursing and lab station
  • 24 offices for mental health clinicians
  • A pharmacy
  • A meditation room and space for workshops and group activities, including a “napping class” to help students improve their sleep quality

For students not located on the Uptown Campus, direct shuttles are provided. Previously, it required two shuttles with a transfer for students to get from the Downtown Campus to Health & Counseling Services. Now, one shuttle will take students directly there.
