Are you concerned about a student? The Students of Concern (SOC) Team may be the right place to turn.
The Students of Concern Team is NOT tasked with responding to emergencies. If this is an emergency and you are in need of immediate assistance or consultation, contact University Police at 716-673-3333.
The Counseling Center at Fredonia offers free, confidential, private and individualized services by licensed mental health professionals to all registered students.Counseling Center
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.Student Health Center

PAWS works to reduce the incidence, prevalence, and severity of substance abuse and interpersonal violence related problems among Fredonia students.
