NYU's approach to the health of our students is one of “wellness”: supporting students in all aspects of their lives in order to enable them to achieve success. A comprehensive set of services and resources -- including the Wellness Exchange, LiveWellNYU, and the Student Health Center -- exist to address the full spectrum of students’ health and wellness needs.
We know how devoted and concerned parents and families are about the well-being of their students, and we want to provide you with guidance and resources to proactively help your student maintain good health or to respond in cases of student mental distress.
With a focus on preventive health, LiveWellNYU is a university-wide initiative designed to engage and empower students in achieving their best possible health. LiveWellNYU provides tools and resources for individual students to maintain good health and promotes how faculty and staff; student leaders; parents; family; friends; and community partners can work together in a united and coordinated effort to improve the health and wellness of our students.
As a parent or family member, you play a crucial role in guiding and supporting your student in making healthy decisions. This website is intended to be a resource to keep you informed about how to help the student in your life be healthy.
