COVID-19 & Updates to Longhorn Wellness Center

UT Austin has made modifications to university operations to help slow the spread of COVID-19. The following is a list of how these decisions impact Longhorn Wellness Center:

Operational updates:

  • All staff and peer led in-person workshops and events sponsored by Longhorn Wellness Center will be cancelled for the remainder of the semester.
  • Students involved in an LWC-sponsored student organization (VAV student org, Student Mental Health Alliance, Theatre for Dialogue, peer educators, mental health ambassadors) will be provided direction about online meetings for the remainder of the semester.
  • Longhorn Wellness Center staff members will be working remotely until further notice. You can contact staff members via email.

Our aim is to promote well-being and thriving for all UT Students.

A student's health and their ability to thrive academically are closely linked. The Longhorn Wellness Center (LWC) supports the missions of University Health Services and the Counseling and Mental Health Center by addressing priority college health issues. We do this using multi-level, evidence-based prevention strategies such as peer education, social marketing, social norm campaigns, environmental changes, and strategic campus partnerships.
