Campus Resources for Students

by Dean of Students Office

According to the Healthy Minds Study done on campus in the fall of 2018, 49% of our students indicated that they would go to faculty or staff if they had an issue impacting their academic performance. In these situations, students are often looking for advice and direction so it is helpful to be aware of some of the key resources available on campus: 

Counseling Services is available to assist in a crisis or provide short-term, solution-focused counseling. Walk-in hours are available daily and are listed on the website.

Husky Food Access Network supports student experiencing food insecurity. Food is available at the Husky Food Pantry located in Fisher Hall, in the space that was previously the Aftermath Cafe. Hours are listed on the website.

Report a Concern is a web page that allows anyone to file a concern about a variety of topics. In this case, if you are concerned about a student and think they would benefit from additional follow up, use the Student of Concern report button. The Dean of Students Office will triage the report and connect the student appropriately.

Waino Wahtera Center for Student Success offers support for students would benefit from developing executive functioning skills like time management, personal organization, self-control, and communication. In addition, students with disabilities are also able to request accommodations here.

Emergency Financial Resources are available for students who experience an unexpected emergency. Three different funds are available depending on whether a student is an undergraduate or graduate and/or domestic or international.

Dean of Students Office is the place to call/email if you aren’t sure what to do. We can help sort out a situation, make a referral, or contact the student directly in order to have a further discussion.
