Privileged and Confidential Resources

At Purchase College there are three campus offices whose staff members provide confidential support and resources. They will not report crimes to law enforcement or college officials without your permission, except in extreme circumstances involving a medical and/or safety emergency. 

Students seeking emergency and crisis response contact the Counseling Center: (914) 251-6390 or walk-in to the Humanities Bldg LL during business hours. After hours and on weekends contact the University Police (914) 251-6911 and ask for Campus Advocacy Services (CAS).

Health Services: (914) 251-6380 or hse@purchase.edu
Wellness Center: (914) 251-6665 or wellness@purchase.edu

Employees seeking a confidential resource can contact the Employee Assistance Coordinator: (914) 251-6098 or EAP@purchase.edu.

Off-campus options for confidential resources which do not provide any information to the college:

  • Off-campus counselors and advocates.
  • Crisis services offices will generally maintain confidentiality unless you request disclosure and sign a consent or waiver form. More information on an agency’s policies on confidentiality may be obtained directly from the agency.
