Mental Health & Wellness

Mental wellness is your sense of emotional wellbeing. It’s shaped by your ability to cope with stress, anxiety, and other challenges of life in a healthy way. The mission of University Counseling Services is to promote healthy lifestyles and support academic success by providing quality mental health services. The goal is to empower our students, faculty, and staff by inspiring hope and dignity as well as strengthening families and communities.

Physical Health, Fitness & Wellness

Keeping students healthy in body, mind, and spirit – OCU Law offers services that support you in all aspects of your law school journey—in the classroom and out. Physical wellness represents the health of your body, and it’s heavily influenced by diet and exercise. We have a partnership with Park Harvey Properties to provide our students with exclusive access to their fitness facilities, including a variety of fitness courses.


Just a short walk from OCU Law, Park Harvey Properties provides students with exclusive access to their fitness facilities, including treadmills, ellipticals, weight machines and a variety of fitness classes. Law students can also use the Aduddell Fitness Center, Henry J. Freede Wellness Center or play intramural sports on OCU’s main campus.

OCU’s Family Healthcare & Minor Emergency Clinic provides Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners to assist students and employees and their dependents with primary healthcare needs.

Campus Health Services is committed to providing prompt and appropriate healthcare. Our goal is to promote a healthy lifestyle as a means to helping students achieve their highest potential. By providing opportunities to learn health-promoting behaviors, we help our students pursue higher levels of wellness throughout their lives.

In college, most students first begin addressing healthcare needs as an adult. Whether they come from another country, state, or town, the healthcare system is complex and most need help navigating it. The Student Health staff helps students understand how to locate appropriate care.

Electronic Medical Records

We’ve made the switch to electronic medical records! Your provider may use a computer in the exam room or may “chart” in their office between appointments, providers can send Secure Messages with lab or test results or just to follow up after a visit and you can reply to these messages, too.


Diversity & Inclusion

We pride ourselves on the inclusive environment that’s become a hallmark of OCU Law. We are dedicated to engaging our faculty, students, staff, and administration in equity, social justice, and intercultural awareness both inside and outside of the classroom and offer opportunities for continued learning through first generation programs, cultural month celebrations, and cultural holiday recognition.
