The NYU Student Health Center and the Department of Public Safety work closely with program staff to plan for safe, healthy, and enriching opportunities long before you arrive. You will be introduced to many of these services in the months leading up to your program abroad while others will be explained in detail during the mandatory on-site orientation. Get a head start on familiarizing yourself with global health and wellness resources by visiting the NYU Student Health Center website.
At NYU London, we consider student wellbeing an essential part of the overall study abroad experience. We have arranged several avenues through which students may access support:
- Our wellness counsellor, Maisie Chou Chaffin is available for consultation, in order to confidentially address a range of wellness-related concerns. When such concerns are of an emotional nature, Maisie is able to offer short-term counselling sessions, as well as referral into the community, as needed. Maisie also offers several workshops, particularly for Freshmen, including topics such as Relationships, Study Skills, Time Management, Culture Shock and Exam Preparation. You can contact Maisie by either dropping into her office, or by emailing her at Maisie.Chaffin@nyu.edu
- NYU London has established a relationship with the London Claremont Clinic, a private health service that works alongside NYU London and GeoBlue to provide medical as well as psychological consultation.
- NYU London students’ health insurance through GeoBlue also gives access to a large network of professionals, addressing both medical and psychological concerns.
In a crisis, students can access the NYU London Exchange 24 hours a day on 0800 316 0469, where they can be connected with an NYU London staff member. Students can also use this same freephone number any time, free of charge, to access the NYU Wellness Exchange in New York, or send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
