Health and Safety

Health and Safety

Keeping students, employees and visitors safe, secure and healthy is a primary concern at Washington and Lee.

Physical Health

Student Health Center

The Student Health Center provides medical evaluation and care of student health concerns, both in an outpatient office setting and, when around-the-clock care is needed, in an infirmary.

Mental Health

Student Counseling

Washington and Lee University is committed to the development of the whole person. Therefore, a highly trained and experienced counseling staff is available to help students with a variety of difficulties that might impact not only a student's academic work, but overall sense of well-being.

Campus Safety

Public Safety

Public Safety works to uphold a safe and secure environment for all members of the campus community through patrolling, safe rides, education, emergency management and student support. They are committed to doing all they can to help keep the campus safe for all.

Unexpected Emergencies

Emergency Management

At Washington and Lee University, we take great pride in a community of trust and care for one another. However, we also recognize that W&L and the City of Lexington are not immune to emergencies. That is why we have developed a comprehensive plan of action and response to maintain the safety of our campus community.
