Health and Wellness
We ask a lot of you at Purchase. We ask you to be conscientious and questioning, to be open to new ideas, and to be a willing participant in our community. To do this, you need to feel your very best: mentally, emotionally, and physically.
Counseling and Behavioral Health Services
Our counselors can help you at the Counseling Center on the lower level of Humanities with stress, crisis response, personal problems, mental health, sexual assault and abuse, and substance use matters.
We provide free, voluntary, and confidential mental healthcare services. We offer emergency response, individual and group counseling, outreach, consultation for all current students.
Harbor Center for Health Promotion
Our health promotion and stress reduction activities at the Harbor Center enhance the student experience.
Health promotion helps build a student’s resiliency as a community while increasing well-being through education and harm prevention programming.
If you or someone you know is experiencing an emergency (e.g., appears to be a threat to themselves or others) after hours, please contact our New York State University Police at 914-251-6911.
It’s tough being sick no matter where you are, but it always feels worse when you’re away from home. Our team of professional medical practitioners are on-site, ready to provide primary care, diagnoses, treatment, and education to all matriculated students.
Health Services is open Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 5pm.
It’s easy to be a couch potato, but not at Purchase, with so many options to stay active. Visit the fitness center, swim in our olympic-size pool, join an intramural team, or take a recreational class.
