Health & Counseling Center
What is the Health and Counseling Center (HCC) and where is it located?
The University of Denver Health & Counseling Center is your on-campus integrated health and counseling facility providing quality physical and mental health care services to all actively enrolled DU students other than those in completely online programs.
The HCC has multiple locations, depending on your need and appointment. Our main location (medical and some counseling appointments) is in the Ritchie Center on the northeast corner of campus, roughly a 15-minute walk from the Anderson Academic Commons. Some counseling appointments may be held in our Asbury location, located on the northeast corner of University Boulevard and Asbury Avenue. Our Collegiate Recovery Community is located on York Street between Jewell Ave and Asbury Ave.
Should I come to the HCC in an emergency?
While the Health & Counseling Center is not an emergency room or urgent care facility, they are here to make sure you get the help you need when you need it. If you or someone around you is in an emergency situation, don't hesitate to call 9-1-1, or Campus Safety at 303-871-3000 or ext. 1-3000, right away. For a non-emergency illness, injury, or mental health crisis, call the Front Desk at 303-871-2205 — help is available 24/7.
How do I sign up for the Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP)?
All students enrolled in one or more hours of graded, on-campus coursework at the University of Denver are required to carry personal health insurance coverage. Fortunately, the University offers its own convenient health insurance plan designed specifically for our student body — the Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) is ideal for the vast majority of students in the DU community.
Please review the DU Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) enrollment on the DU Bursar Office website.
Can outside insurance cover student HCC costs?
The HCC does not bill third-party insurance. Students can submit their bill from the HCC to their private health insurance for reimbursement if desired.

Will the details of my medical care be kept confidential?
Yes, the HCC is a HIPAA protected entity, which means all of your medical details are confidential.
