Health & Counseling Center

A welcoming building for student health.

The design of the Health and Counseling Center building takes its cue from the region’s architectural heritage. It is village-scaled with white clapboard and a standing-seam painted metal roof. A glowing cupola and small porch give the building a welcoming presence. Inside, the layout is student-centric and designed for quick access to treatment and counseling in spaces that are private and discrete.

Warm and light-filled spaces.

The main floor features a light-filled waiting room and an adjacent conference room that can be used by student organizations; it is separate from the healthcare suite and open after hours. The corridor leading to the treatment area is secured by a receptionist’s desk. Just beyond, a large nurse’s station is open and welcoming, and features visual sightlines to all of the adjacent examination rooms, which are acoustically designed for maximum privacy.

Dedicated space for mental health needs.

The counseling center is located on the second floor and is accessed through a broad, naturally lit dedicated stairway, giving patients an extra layer of privacy. The counseling rooms all have beautiful and peaceful views of adjacent lawns and campus vistas. There is a room for prevention and peer counseling, and a small conference room for group counseling and peer support groups.
