Center for Health and Counseling
The Student Health and Counseling Center helps you be healthy, body and mind. The center offers general health care, health education, counseling, alcohol abuse evaluation, and can coordinate your student health insurance. The center is right across from Wood Center, so help is never far away.
At the University of Alaska Fairbanks, the safety, security and well-being of our students, faculty, staff and visitors are our foremost concern. To help you make an informed decision and comply with the Clery Act, we publish an annual Campus Security Report. This report contains information from the three previous calendar years concerning reported offenses, arrests, crimes, and disciplinary referrals that occurred on campus; in certain off-campus buildings owned or controlled by the University; and on public property within, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus. The report also includes institutional policies concerning campus security, alcohol and other drug use, crime prevention strategies, and how to report crimes, sexual assault, and other related matters.
