Your Wellbeing, Health, and Safety Resources
At NYU, our goal is to help you build the skills and support structures you need to thrive! As you begin your journey here, we want you to prioritize your wellbeing every step of the way.
The offices and initiatives below are dedicated to helping you develop specific skills in pursuit of your wellbeing and flourishing. We’re here to help you to create a blueprint for a whole, fulfilling, meaningful life—however you define it—foster your dreams and aspirations, and support and enhance your resilience and self-care.
The Wellness Exchange is your greatest mental health resource at NYU. Call the 24-hour hotline at (212) 443-9999, chat via the Wellness Exchange app anytime ( iPhone | Android), or arrange a same-day Urgent Counseling session to speak with a certified counselor about any day-to-day challenges or health concerns, including medical issues, stress, depression, sexual assault, anxiety, alcohol or drug dependence, and eating disorders. No concern is too big or too small. Worried about a friend? Our counselors are here for that too.
Counseling and Wellness Services
Counseling and Wellness Services can help with any mental health concerns you might experience, including stress, anxiety, alcohol or drugs, eating, depression, family issues, suicidal thoughts, and more. We offer individual counseling, group counseling, wellness workshops, referrals to long-term services in the community, and long-term psychiatric medication services on-site. Except for psychiatry services, they are provided at no cost.
Student Health Center
The Student Health Center offers universal, hassle-free appointment-based and urgent medical and counseling services at either no cost or very reduced cost to all NYU students, regardless of insurance coverage The SHC is here to help you feel your best so you can do your best.
Sexual and Relationship Respect
We are committed to fostering a community in which sexual misconduct, relationship violence, and stalking are not tolerated — and a campus in which members feel safe reporting misconduct. Read NYU’s policy, learn about confidentiality when reporting an incident, and find support at our Sexual and Relationship Respect page.
Health Promotion promotes flourishing, inspires positive decision-making, and fosters a healthier, happier NYU. We create programs on stress, mental and sexual health, alcohol and other drugs, healthy eating, bystander intervention and more.

Office of the Dean of Students
The Office of the Dean of Students is invested in the success of all NYU students. We cultivate community and belonging for NYU students, and we do this by helping students develop skills needed to effectively communicate across differences, engage in healthy conflict, and develop strong relationships across the NYU community. We also advocate on behalf of students and provide support when students face challenges. Our office is a great place to start if you have a question and are not sure where to go.
Global Spiritual Life
Global Spiritual Life offers trainings, tools and experiences that cultivate belonging in order to reclaim the value of love in education and action. In order to do so, Global Spiritual Life is working with students, faculty, and administrators across New York University and the Global Network to build a Beloved Community.

A commitment to offering inclusive, transformative experiences based in love, community and healing is at the foundation of our mission.

Bias Response Line
The Bias Response Line provides a mechanism through which members of our community can report an experience of harassment, discrimination, or bias — or share related concerns. Experienced administrators will work with you to identify next steps.
NYU is committed to equal treatment and opportunity for all in an environment free of bias, prejudice, discrimination, and harassment. There is no place at NYU for discrimination on the basis of, for example: race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, disability, citizenship, or age. Such behavior — including bias-related crimes — may also violate federal and state laws. To learn more about how NYU addresses such conduct, see the University’s Non-Discrimination and Anti-Harassment policy.
