The Wellness Center

The Wellness Center can provide you with a range of services depending on your needs. We offer medical services, counseling services (both individual and group), and sexual assault advocacy.

 

If you wish to access medical services at the Wellness Center, a medical professional can perform a basic physical and gynecological exam to assess and/or treat for injuries. The Wellness Center can also perform STI/HIV testing.

 

If you wish to schedule a brief phone call to assess counseling needs, please call the Wellness Center at 773-508-8883.  Individual or group counseling options are available. For individual counseling, brief short-term therapy is offered. Group counseling for sexual assault survivors is also available.

 

The Wellness Center also employs trained sexual assault advocates. Trained advocates are available to answer any questions that you may have, including: how to report an incident of violence, what resources exist on- and off-campus, what Loyola's conduct process looks like, how to safety plan, and more. You can make an appointment with an advocate by calling the Loyola Sexual Assault Advocate Line at 773-494-3810.

When calling Dial-A-Nurse at 773-508-8883 to make an appointment, you can ask to see a provider that you’ve seen in the past or mention certain preferences you may have (such as gender). The Wellness Center will try to accommodate your requests to the best of our abilities.

Wellness Center services are confidential. No information you share with a staff member will be shared with any other department at Loyola.

Wellness Center services are confidential. No information you share with a staff member will be shared with any other department at Loyola, nor will anything go on your student education record. 

Who you choose to see is completely up to you. The benefit of seeking services at the Wellness Center is that our services are free and you can be seen relatively quickly—often that same day for medical services. We recognize that it can be difficult to discuss certain experiences with a school staff member, so we also support your right to see someone off-campus and can provide you with a referral. Long term therapy can be helpful as it provides ongoing support throughout your academic career.
