Health, Wellness, and Safety
The health, wellness, and safety of our students is our primary concern. Focused on prevention and education, our entire campus community is committed to ensuring you have a healthy and safe environment in which to live, learn, and complete your climb.
Keeping our campus community healthy and safe
From our on-campus Student Health Center and Counseling Center to drug and alcohol abuse prevention services and stress management, our Healthy Husky initiative is all about giving you the tools you need to thrive as a member of our pack. Add to that our Campus Safety professionals, led by the fully-accredited University Police department, and you can be assured that this campus prides itself on maintaining a safe and healthy environment for all Huskies.

Student Health Center
The on-campus Student Health Center is staffed by caring medical professionals who offer many health services by appointment including routine exams, acute care, consultations and other healthcare services.
Life can be tricky to navigate...and life in college is no different. BU offers students free services through our on-campus Counseling and Human Development Center to help you cope with anxiety, depression, relationships, adjustment difficulties, family issues, substance use, eating concerns, traumatic events and more.
BU's campus-wide health and wellness initiative focuses on education and prevention, and features our Husky PAWS (Peer Assisted Wellness Services). These students are trained to support and educate their peers about various health issues that affect student success. You'll see PAWS all over campus with giveaways, games and activities, handouts, and more to help you live well so you can learn well.
At BU, we are committed to the safety and well-being of our entire campus community. The BU Police Department (BUPD) is accredited by the Pennsylvania Chiefs of Police Association through its Pennsylvania Law Enforcement Accreditation Program. BU is one of only seven accredited Institutions of Higher Education Law Enforcement Agencies within Pennsylvania to have earned this accreditation. In addition, the Office of Workplace Safety is responsible for protecting the health and safety of all students, employees and visitors.
