About University Health Services

School life can be stressful. University Health Services (UHS) and the Texas A&M University College of Engineering have partnered to help promote your mental health and wellness. We recognize that students' schedules are demanding, so UHS offers office hours in the Zachry Engineering Education Complex (ZACH 382E).

UHS also provides non-emergency, same-day assistance for immediate emotional support needs at the Student Services Building, on the fourth floor, Monday to Friday, from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. The HelpLine is available at 979-845-2700 from 4 p.m. to 8 a.m. weekdays and 24 hours a day on weekends when classes are in session. It provides telephone, peer support, information, crisis intervention, and referrals to students, as well as those concerned about students.

The TELUS HEALTH app provides free, immediate 24/7 real time chat and phone support, along with virtual single session and short-term counseling. Users also gain access to an extensive digital content library, containing articles, podcasts, infographics and videos addressing a variety of wellbeing topics, as well as access to free virtual fitness sessions.

UHS and College of Engineering have also collaborated to present a Workshop Series specifically for engineering students.

Locations and Hours

The UHS office in Zachry (ZACH 382E) is open from 8 a.m.–5 p.m. on Monday through Friday (by appointment only). Let's Talk hours are available on Fridays (2–4 p.m.) in the Zachry office. To increase accessibility and ensure students' and staff members' safety and health, both telehealth options and in-person sessions will be available.
