From time to time, we all have difficulties with our personal relationships, social life, classes, or finances. As a result, we may feel depressed or anxious without being able to link these feelings to a single problem. Other crises arise when we are victims of physical assault, harassment, or discrimination; have a serious substance abuse problem; or feel violent or suicidal. If you find yourself in a crisis, don’t hesitate to call the Office of Victim Assistance at 303-492-8855 for free and confidential assistance.

CU-Boulder encourages students to research various health plan options in order to make informed choices about health care. CU-Boulder has a mandatory policy that requires all students taking 1 or more credit hours to be covered by a health insurance plan. Students may elect coverage under their own insurance, through an employer, or through their parents; however, you will be automatically enrolled and billed by the university for the Student Gold Health Insurance Plan unless you select the Wardenburg Campus Care Plan or waive coverage by the semester deadline.
