COVID-19 Updates: Health + Wellness

Operations and teaching are online. Current and prospective students: please visit our COVID-19 Updates pages. Faculty and staff are available via email.

Dear Students

Your good health and wellness is important to us. These are difficult times for you and we want to make sure you have access to all the information the UW can offer in the way of guidance about what it means to:

  • stay-at-home
  • practice good health prevention measures
  • maintain a healthy routine
  • stay safe in this environment

The faculty and staff of the School of Art + Art History + Design hope that you will stay well and healthy.

Let's Talk

  • Virtual Let's Talk provides free, drop-in support with experienced therapists from the UW Counseling Center and Hall Health during designated hours.
  • Students complete a questionnaire on the Let's Talk website. Once they finish, the website displays a link to participate. They also receive an email with the link. As always, Let's Talk is confidential and secure.
  • Let's Talk isn't counseling; it's a way for us to provide low-barrier informal support and resources. To access short-term therapy or groups, students should contact the Counseling Center at 206-543-1240 or Hall Health at 206-543-5030. Services are currently provided through Zoom and/or by phone.
