The Health and Counseling Center strives to advance the mission of the University of Portland by providing excellent services from our holistic model of care. Our educational, clinical, and counseling services aim for optimal balance between access to care and effectiveness of services.
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 worldview. HCC staff are committed to opposing microaggressions, discriminations, prejudice, and all forms of oppression.
The Health and Counseling Center is located in Orrico Hall, First Floor.
We're open Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The Health and Counseling Center values our ability to provide students with a safe and confidential place to seek help. We WILL NOT speak to parents, friends, coaching staff, or UP faculty unless we have signed release from the student.
