Main Campus Resources

Elon University offers a wide variety of health and counseling services to our law students, faculty and staff. All law students, faculty and staff are eligible to receive services at the R.N. Ellington Center for Health and Wellness. Located in a newly renovated facility on South campus, the Centers offer a wide variety of health and counseling services to the university community throughout the school year.

A variety of medical expertise is offered by the staff of physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, certified medical assistants and nurses to bring quality, efficient service and care to the university community. All counselors in the center are fully licensed by the State of North Carolina and offer brief, solution-oriented therapies.

Health Services

The R.N. Center for Health and Wellness offers medical services to the students, faculty and staff of Elon University through Student Health Services. Providers are available during hours of operation to evaluate, treat and assist students, faculty and staff with their medical needs.

Students are seen at any time during operational hours on a walk-in basis, and appointment times are available as well. To make an appointment, call (336) 278-7230.

Student visits to Student Health Services and Counseling Services are free of charge. There are nominal charges for medications, lab tests, procedures and medical supply items. When the Student Health & Counseling staff orders x-rays, emergency treatments, or a referral to an outside provider, any charges incurred are the responsibility of the student.

Charges for services and medications incurred at Health Services may be paid at time of service (cash, check or Phoenix card) or billed to the student (payment is made at the Bursar's office).

Counseling Services

During your years at Elon you may want help and guidance in dealing with emotions, gaining self-confidence or finding your own set of values. Counselors work from a solution-focused, short-term orientation emphasizing client strengths.

Counseling Services is located in the R.N. Ellington Health and Counseling Center on campus between the Moseley and Loy Centers. Office hours are 8 a.m. - 5 p.m., Monday - Friday (last appointment scheduled for 4:00).

Please be sure to visit our Confidentiality page for information about e-mail.

Counseling Services attempts to see clients in a timely fashion. Every effort will be made to work with your class or work schedule. Because demand for our services is high, try to schedule an appointment as early as possible if you have concerns. Call the main number 278-7280 and speak with the Program Assistant. Messages may be left on confidential voice mail for the counselors or the Program Assistant.

From time to time the center is quite busy. You may find that it takes a few days to get an appointment. We urge you, therefore, not to wait to call until you feel you are in a crisis. Try to schedule an appointment as soon as you begin to develop concerns. If you are experiencing considerable distress at the time of your call, please make this known to the staff immediately.

If your concerns are of a critical nature during regular business hours, you may come to the Counseling Center between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. and we will arrange for you to speak with someone as soon as possible.

After normal business hours, we encourage you to contact Campus Safety and Police at (336) 278-5555. The counselor on call will be paged and will contact you. If you feel suicidal and/or are concerned that you may be in danger of hurting yourself or another, you may go directly to the emergency room of your local hospital.

Please note that student health and counseling records are confidential and can only be released with the signed permission of the student.
