We’re still here for you!
At Student Health and Counseling we are taking safety measures and precautions to
help protect the health and well-being of our employees, students, and the UAF community
during the COVID-19 outbreak. Information regarding appointments are listed below.
Student Health and Counseling has limited the entrance to our facility to the door on the front side of the building by the Police dept. The entrance on the back side of the building by the Fire dept. is available to anyone needing special accessibility (wheel chair, crutches, etc. ) to the facility. Just ring the door bell on that side or call us 474-7043 and someone will let you in.
For medical appointments:
It is recommended for students to call SHCC via telephone, at which point, you will be screened for recent travel and other symptoms such as fever, cough and/or shortness of breath. Medical providers will be able to give proper guidance on next steps during this telephone screening time. Starting on Thursday, March 25, from 1-2 p.m. the medical providers will be available via Zoom for Q&A sessions to help answer questions that you may have.
For counseling appointments:
We will be providing telehealth services for students via SecureVideo beginning on Monday March 23. If you currently do not have an appointment, we ask that you call via telephone in order to schedule. As your appointment day gets closer, you will receive an e-mail with instructions on how to access the video session.
We are also working together to develop online mental health resources and as well as some outreach opportunities. “Taking Charge of Your Headspace,” a stress and coping workshop on Zoom, takes place every Tuesday from 1-2 p.m. Stay tuned for additional resources to come!
We understand that this is a very stressful time. We are working to ensure we can
continue to offer support for those who want it.
