Western New England University is an active learning environment that offers numerous ways to help students maintain a healthy lifestyle. From a wide variety of food choices at our University Commons to outstanding athletic and fitness facilities, we give our students (as well our alumni and employees) many paths to a healthful lifestyle.

Center for Health and Wellness

Formerly Health Services and Counseling Services, the Center for Health and Wellness is directed by a full-time certified family nurse practitioner and staffed with nurse practitioners, a physician assistant, and a part-time physician. It is one of the most comprehensive facilities of its kind in the region and offers both medical services and educational programs to promote a healthy community.

The Center has caring, licensed professionals who provide confidential help to students with personal, social, and educational concerns. From anxiety about transitioning to college to finding off-campus therapists, we're here to support you.

Alcohol and Drug Education Services
