Counseling Center

The Counseling Center at Fredonia offers free, confidential, private and individualized services by licensed mental health professionals to all registered students. 

Student Health Center

Located in LoGrasso Hall, and staffed with a physician, nurse practitioners and registered nurses, the Student Health Center is a good place to start if you have medical needs. The Student Health Center functions similar to that of an urgent care in that we are able to diagnose and treat acute illness and injury without having to leave campus.

Disability Support Services

The office of Disability Support Services for Students (DSS) coordinates those services essential to providing students with disabilities equal access and the opportunity to be successful at the State University of New York at Fredonia. DSS provides support services and reasonable accommodations which provide students with disabilities equal access, and works to ensure that "no otherwise qualified individual with a disability shall, solely by reason of his or her disability, be excluded from participating in any of the activities, courses, programs, or benefits." of the college. 

Prevention, Advocacy, and Wellness Outreach Services

Prevention, Advocacy, and Wellness Services (PAWS) strives to create a campus culture in which members make informed and responsible decisions regarding their personal and community health. PAWS works to reduce the incidence, prevalence, and severity of substance abuse and interpersonal violence related problems among Fredonia students.


Care Coordination

Care Coordination helps students manage life stressors that can impact academics and personal well-being. Care Coordination enhances student success by identifying needs, removing barriers and reducing distress. After receiving a referral for services, the office helps students through a variety of interventions, university services, community referrals and case management.
