Physical and emotional well-being contribute to your success 

 FGCU provides comprehensive services to ensure your health and safety, including emergency and routine preventive care, counseling and information on health and self care.

Counseling and Psychological Services

Self-help resources can enhance problem-solving, goal-setting and confidence.

Free counseling can help you learn strategies for coping with anxiety, depression, relationships and other challenges on your path to achieving success in college.

Student Health Services

 Academic success is closely associated with your overall health and wellness.

We provide routine care, immunizations and 24-hour emergency assistance as well as education that can help you make good lifestyle choices for a healthy future.

Prevention & Wellness

 Patterns established in college can have lifelong impact.

We connect with students by providing information, events and resources relevant to their lives and their decisions about nutrition, alcohol and drugs, sexual health and other important wellness issues that can affect their success.
