The Health and Counseling Center is located on the first floor of Keuka Commons and is open Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. The Center provides assessment and treatment of common and emergency health and emotional concerns. Whatever your concern may be, we can help.
Counseling Services offers in-person services to students who are fully vaccinated. Teletherapy services are also available for comfort or convenience. Please be sure to specify which type of appointment you would prefer Mental Health counseling is available to students enrolled at Keuka College for no cost. The Counseling Center uses a brief solution-focused model to assist with concerns such as anxiety, depression, grief and loss, stress management, and relationship issues. Students who need ongoing counseling or counseling that is out of the scope of the Counseling Center will be referred by Counseling Center staff to outside resources.
*Ongoing counseling and treatment is not covered by the college.*
Students are welcome to call (315) 279-5368 for scheduling or email [email protected].
*Students who are seen in person will be asked to follow safety guidelines such as health screenings, temperature checks, and wearing masks. Guidelines may change based on current college policy.

For medical needs, students are asked to call ahead to (315) 279-5368 to schedule an appointment with our healthcare providers. We bill insurance for medical appointments, so students will need to provide health insurance information at the time of visit.
Students are encouraged to be familiar with their health plan, particularly if coverage is ‘out of network’ or if pre-authorization is required for visits to the Health Center.
Our healthcare providers can call in prescriptions to area pharmacies. We work with pharmacies in Penn Yan that can deliver prescriptions or over-the-counter medication to campus free of charge.
