Health Services for Sexual Assault

Tulane Campus Health has student resources and support for survivors of sexual assault. Campus Health offices at the Health Center (Uptown or Downtown campuses) and the Counseling Center are designated as confidential resources which means we will not share the information you disclose unless you provide permission. 

You do not need to make a formal report or press charges to receive care.

Our health services are available to all current students. Students on the Downtown campus may go to the Uptown campus to receive services.

Counseling Center ▾

The Counseling Center is a strictly confidential service; clinic staff do not report sexual violence incidents to administration.


  • The Counseling Center offers emergency same-day appointments, Monday-Friday, Noon - 5:00 pm.
  • A student who has experienced sexual violence can go to the Counseling Center (Uptown campus, Building 14) and tell the front desk they need to see someone that day to discuss an urgent situation. It is important that students are specific in requesting a same-day appointment so a clinician can assist them promptly.

  • The Counseling Center offers a Life After Sexual Assault group. Learn more about groups.
