Health and Wellness

NYU is committed to safety, wellness education, and outstanding health care as part of the University community. Below are some NYU resources and instructions on how to stay safe and healthy while enjoying life in the big city.

Wellness Exchange

The Wellness Exchange is your key to accessing NYU’s extensive health and mental health resources. A central feature common to all these services is a private, 24/7 hotline that puts students in touch with professionals who can help them address day-to-day challenges as well as other health-related concerns, including medical issues, academic stress, depression, sexual assault, anxiety, alcohol and other drug dependence, sexually transmitted infections, and eating disorders. The hotline is also available if you just need to talk or want to call about a friend.

The hotline can be reached from any campus phone by dialing 999 or from any outside line at 212-443-9999. The number is also printed on the back of all NYU ID cards.

Student Health Center

NYU's Student Health Center (SHC) is a campus resource and service center for all matriculated students. We offer universal, hassle-free appointment-based and walk-in medical and counseling services at either no cost or very reduced cost to all NYU students, regardless of insurance coverage. Our goal is to add great value to the NYU experience for students and great comfort in knowing that a safety net for basic healthcare exists at NYU.
