Health & Public Safety

Whether we are discussing W&L’s impressive academic offerings or our commitment to ensuring high quality student life programs, all of W&L’s programs share an underlying strength that flows from our considerable resources.

Our Student Health and Counseling offices are well-staffed with professionals in a variety of areas who offer educational and counseling programs and services for our students, whatever their needs may be. We take a confidential, individualized approach to addressing student needs in our 24-hour Student Health Center and in the Office of University Counseling.

W&L’s Office of Public Safety provides a safe and secure environment for students, faculty, staff and visitors to the University community. W&L is fortunate to be in a setting that somewhat insulates us from safety issues more common in larger or urban settings, but even so, the University has comprehensive Emergency Management plans in place. And W&L’s Traveller Safe Ride system is merely a phone call away and is available 7 nights a week from 10:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m.
