Health, Wellness and Safety

At Simmons, we believe that good health is at the center of a quality education. For our students to succeed academically, it’s important that they feel safe and supported. We have a variety of programs in place designed to promote the well-being of Simmons students in support of their academic success.

We know that our students thrive when they’re healthy

Simmons offer a wide variety of health, fitness, and wellness programming. In addition, as members of the Colleges of the Fenway, we have access to even more health and wellness opportunities, including intramural sports.

Respect, Integrity, Honesty and Trust

The Simmons community culture is founded on these values. The Student Code of Conduct is our guide to expectations of behaviors by our students and by student organizations.

Mental wellbeing is essential to having a fulfilling college experience

The Simmons Counseling Center provides comprehensive mental health support and referrals for undergraduate and graduate students. The counseling center staff is committed to a student-centered approach, and places an emphasis on the emotional, physical and spiritual development of students.

Here to support your physical health needs

Simmons Health Center, located on the Simmons Residence Campus, offers health care to Simmons undergraduate and graduate students. A Provider is on-call whenever the Health Center is closed by calling Public Safety.  All Undergraduates may access the center as a part of their health fee. Graduate students enrolled in the university health plan can access services for free. All other students can receive treatment fee for service (insurance not accepted).

Making holistic support resources more easily accessible

The REEF Support Center is a centralized student support services unit that included food and housing security resources, the SOS emergency fund, commuter student services, off-campus housing resources, and violence prevention and education.

The physical safety of our students is of paramount importance

To ensure our students feel safe and supported, Simmons Public Safety provides police and security services to the University community. The department operates around the clock, every day of the year. Learn more about the POM Safety Device and tips on keeping safe.
