Health & Wellness

The Graduate Center provides a variety of health services to its students:

  • The Wellness Center, offering health education and counseling services for students
  • Several health insurance options for interested students: click here for link
  • Students can also attend fitness classes at the Graduate Center and sign up for membership at the facilities of several schools in the CUNY consortium.
  • The Lactation Room is a dedicated space at the Graduate Center for mothers to express breast milk for a nursing child. Room 7408, also called the Mothers' Room, is available to all nursing women students and employees who present a Graduate Center ID. Nursing mothers may also continue using the Eighth Floor pantry (near the Dining Commons), and the Child Care Center for the same purpose. Those wishing to use the Mothers' Room should fill out a one-time key request form in the Student Affairs office, room 7301.

Student Counseling Services

The Student Counseling Services is staffed by licensed psychologists and by postdoctoral and predoctoral fellows. We provide confidential counseling and short-term psychotherapy, group counseling, crisis intervention, and referral services to matriculated students of The Graduate Center and Craig Newmark School of Journalism, and couples therapy to students and their partners. We offer academic consultations to help deal with dissertation issues and other concerns. Workshops that address the challenges and stresses of graduate student life are also offered.
