Supporting You, Body and Mind

Down

Our health and wellness center doesn’t look or feel like most. Ours looks and feels like a home—complete with comfy furniture, fireplace, and even a dog—and we welcome students to take advantage of our many services. We offer a safe place for all students. The center is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. You can find our building off of Wellesly Avenue on the campus map.

During the fall 2020 semester, all visits to the Health and Wellness Center (HWCwill be by appointment only. When a student calls HWC, they will either be immediately transferred to a nurse, or an appointment will be scheduled depending on the level of urgency and staff availability. The student will be assessed and triaged via phone for COVID-19 symptoms. The nurse will either refer the student for testing, prescribe quarantine protocols or recommend the relevant intervention if a test is not warrantedNon-COVID health conditions will be scheduled for a virtual, telehealth visit with a nurse or physician. All students, regardless of assessment, will receive a follow up phone call in 24-48 hours.  

Counseling Visits will all be virtual and scheduled through counselorhwc@queens.edu.

Traditional undergraduate and nursing students have access to our full array of integrated treatment services--treating both body and mind--as part of their comprehensive tuition. This includes:

  • Clinical Services: When you get sick, get treated right on campus – and most of our services are free. We offer appointments with a nurse Monday through Friday, and doctor’s appointments two days a week.
  • Counseling: Come here for individual or group sessions with trained counselors who are here to help support you as you pursue personal growth and development.
  • Preventative Care and Health Testing: We're here with a variety of health testing for students. For example, we offer flu shots, and we’ll even come to dorms so that you don’t have to come to us.
  • Health Promotion and Education: We offer education in stress reduction, resilience, sleep hygiene and more to help you learn how to maximize your physical and mental health.

Treatment Team

The center is staffed by a highly trained team. Our nurses come from critical care backgrounds, with years of experience. Our counselors are specialized in the treatment of emerging adults, and all are licensed and have master's degrees.

A Safe, Confidential Space

We are a safe space for you to come for information, counseling, or treatment. Of course, our services are HIPPA compliant and 100% confidential. This is a safe space for you to come, learn and get help.

Outreach

Although our building is on campus, our reach goes far beyond it. We participate in activities like Love is Respect Week (teaching about healthy relationships), the Pride Parade, Heart Walk, suicide awareness activities and more.

Companion Animals

Nola and Sunshine, our four-legged stress reduction team, are ready to ease students’ stress through walks, jogs, or wet kisses. Come over to take Nola or Sunshine for a jog through the neighborhood or even a walk through campus. They can even sit with students during counseling sessions or lay with students who are sick and want a little company. Nola and Sunshine are here full time, and they just might be the most popular Royals on campus. Meet Nola and Sunshine.
