Health and Safety
As an institution committed to the advancement of health, the College places a priority on the health and safety of our students. ACPHS offers a variety of programs and services to help ensure each student’s physical and mental well being.
Health and Insurance Services
Through its medical partners, the College provides health center
access to students on both the Albany and Vermont campuses as part of the infirmary fee. To further ensure student health, ACPHS requires all full-time students to have health coverage, and for those who are not covered by a family health insurance plan or private insurer, there is a quality plan
offered by the College.
The on-campus Counseling Center
offers free wellness and mental health services to students and their families, as well as faculty and staff. Services include individual, group and family therapy for issues such as mood and anxiety disorders; adjustment and interpersonal problems; stress related difficulties and eating disorders.
Students may maintain their health in the 5,000 square foot Fitness Center
on the Albany Campus which includes free weights, strength machines, cardio equipment and a dance/aerobics room. Students on the Vermont Campus enjoy membership at a local sports club.
The College works closely with its food service provider, Chartwells, to ensure students have access to a variety of healthy food options in the cafeteria. For menus and additional information, please visit Chartwells' Dine on Campus web site.
University Heights Public Safety (UHAPS) provides the public safety services
for the College. This service is seven days a week, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. UHAPS consists of uniformed officers and supervisors who patrol the grounds of the College. Blue Light emergency telephones and an electronic emergency notification system add an additional layer of safety.
