Welcome to Health and Counseling

UNC Asheville’s Health and Counseling Center provides services that are designed to promote and maintain the health of all students to maximize academic success. The staff engages students in a variety of health promotion activities that focus on topics relevant to most college students including stress management skills, healthy eating behaviors, safer sex, and mature choices about alcohol use.

We are staffed with professionals from a variety of disciplines, including: a physician, physician assistants, family nurse practitioners, registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, psychologists, licensed professional counselors and highly qualified support staff. We strive to meet the individual needs of each student by providing confidential health and counseling services and referring to appropriate community resources, if needed.

All students are entitled to use the Health & Counseling Center free of charge. Most services are provided free of charge or at a nominal fee. A student’s health insurance does not impact their ability to access these on-campus services.
