Health and Counseling Center

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the HCC is kindly asking that students, staff, and faculty limit the number of walk-in requests as much as possible by making an appointment before coming to the building. If you are currently experiencing a health emergency, please call 911 or go to the nearest Emergency Room.

The most recent information regarding UP's COVID-19 policies, procedures, and protocols can be found on the Pilots Prevent website and the HCC's COVID-19 website.

Our Mission

The Health and Counseling Center staff are committed to providing an emotionally safe, accessible, and compassionate space for all University of Portland students. We strive to integrate multicultural humility and competence into our everyday functioning, firmly planted in the belief that all people have dignity and are deserving of respect. Grounded in this foundation, we support students of all identities including age, gender, culture, race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, language, mental and physical ability, national origin, religion, spirituality, size, socio-economic status, immigration status, political perspective, and world view. HCC staff are committed to opposing microaggressions, discriminations, prejudice, and all forms of oppression.


Confidentiality Statement

The Health and Counseling Center values our ability to provide students with a safe and confidential place to seek help. Therefore, we will not disclose student information to parents, friends, coaching staff, or faculty unless we have signed release from the student.
