Health and Counseling Services

Health and Counseling Services will remain fully staffed and open during business hours. Students should make contact via the secure patient portal or by phone at 413.559.5458. Students who have left campus may call Health Services if you need prescription refills or help with transition to another primary care provider. After hours and weekends, Hampshire students may also contact a UMass Triage Advice Nurse at 413.577.5229.

The Counseling Service Office is offering phone support and consultation at 413.559.5458. For students outside the Pioneer Valley, counselors can help you establish care where you are located. For students who have Hampshire College health insurance, your insurance covers you out of Massachusetts for both medical and behavioral care. 


The Concern, Assessment, Response, and Evaluation (CARE) team is a student-focused resource group comprised of staff from the Dean of Students Office, Residence Life, CASA, Campus Safety, Counseling Services, and OARS whose goal is to support all students through challenges they may experience during their time at Hampshire. Many supports are available, and the CARE team coordinates response and outreach to empower each student to navigate resources and assist in a plan for their success. If you have a student needing support or not in communication, please submit your concern here or email the CARE chair, Greg Narleski, at ganSA@hampshire.edu.
