LiveWell’s Student Care program works directly with students affected by a variety of issues impacting their ability to be successful at UW – including the loss of family members, housing or food insecurity, financial issues, and other concerns that are in getting in the way of student success.  We work with campus programs (like Financial Aid and Housing & Food Services), to connect students with necessary and appropriate resources (like Disability Resources for Students, counseling and advising), and helps students decide next steps.

Why Make an Appointment?

  • You want to discuss taking some time off school (with the intent to return) in order to deal with a complex situation
  • You are struggling to understand how to effectively utilize campus resources to help you with a current issue
