College can be stressful (and germs happen), so we’re here for those times when you need help with your physical and mental health.

After all, students who are in good physical and mental health achieve greater personal and academic success, as well as contribute to a positive school environment. The Health & Counseling Center offers health, counseling and wellness services to enrolled students, and we encourage you to contact us about your health-care needs.

If you have a medical emergency, call University Police at 512-448-8444 or dial 9-1-1.

If you are experiencing a psychological emergency that is life-threatening or involves a risk of harm to yourself or others, call 9-1-1.

If students are experiencing a psychological crisis, they should contact Counseling Services during normal business hours, or the University Police Department at 512-448-8444 to reach the counselor on call in the evening and on weekends. 

Making (and Keeping) an Appointment

  • Please arrive at the Health and Counseling Center shortly before your scheduled appointment time.
  • Missed medical and counseling appointments will be charged a $25 no-show fee to the student account. Scheduled counseling appointments must be canceled 24 hours before the appointment time to avoid the fee. Scheduled health services appointments must be canceled 4 hours before the appointment time to avoid the fee.
  • If there are no same-day medical appointments available, patients will be deferred to the next day. We do our best to work in patients with acute illnesses and injuries, but patients should understand work-in wait times may be unpredictable. 

Patients with more urgent medical situations who cannot wait until the next available appointment time should consider visiting one of the local urgent care clinics or the E.R.

Billing Information

  • The Health and Counseling Center does file to health insurance companies.
  • Students may elect to pay by cash, check, credit card or Topper Tender. Balances may also be billed to a student account.
  • Counseling services are free for all St. Edward’s University students. A copay is usually required if you are referred to a St. Edward’s University consulting psychiatrist.
