Health and Wellness

Maintaining an appropriate balance of health and wellness can be critical to the success of any graduate student. Please use the resources provided through our campus partners to ensure you are taking the necessary steps to lead a healthy, balanced life during graduate school.

Counseling Services

The Brandeis Counseling Center provides counseling for students with issues ranging from stress and depression to substance abuse and eating disorders. All concerns are addressed with sensitivity to and respect for diversity and individuality.

Health Center and Health Insurance

Basic information about graduate student health insurance options is available online through the Brandeis University Health Center website. For questions about insurance, please contact University Health Plans at 800-437-6448.

Prevention, Advocacy and Resource Center

The Prevention, Advocacy and Resource Center coordinates sexual assault and power-based violence prevention efforts in the campus community. Staff there serve as advocates for student survivors, both graduate and undergraduate, and provide confidential support services to survivors.

The office acts as a liaison to student organizations working on sexual-violence prevention and intervention, and coordinates with campus partners to ensure that university policies and practices effectively identify, prevent and respond to sexual assault, domestic violence/partner abuse, dating violence and stalking.

The center's website is where you can find the most up-to-date Resource Guide for Sexual Assault Survivors, although hard copies are also available in the Graduate Student Center as well as at other locations on campus.

Spiritual and Religious Life

Brandeis encourages and supports all expressions of spiritual and religious life on campus. The university offers a rich diversity of programming, groups and opportunities for academic study.

There are more than 20 student groups focusing on religion and spirituality. Faculty teach about a range of religious traditions in courses through a broad span of departments and programs. Chaplains and advisers from a variety of backgrounds serve the Brandeis community.
