Services and Activities


We provide holistic wellness services to all enrolled GU-Q students. The services include counseling, assessment, crisis intervention, psychoeducation, prevention and outreach, and referrals. The SWCC also provides student and program centered consultation and training for all members of the GU-Q community.

QF Primary Health Care Center

Medical Care, Insurance & Immunization

GU-Q students can access health care both on- and off-campus. All students have access to QF Primary Healthcare Center (QF-PHCC) in the Student Center and to public healthcare through the Qatar National Health system. GU-Q provided health insurance also gives students access to a robust network of healthcare providers. All students are required to be compliant with immunization requirements.

Health Education

Student health and wellness is supported through a variety of programs created to engage students in learning about how to improve their physical and mental well being. In addition to its own programs, SWCC collaborates with other GU-Q departments, Education City universities and local healthcare providers to bring programs to campus with the goal of promoting positive health practices.

Meeting the Needs of All Students

Georgetown University in Qatar (GU-Q) strives to integrate students with physical, psychological, and learning challenges as fully as possible into all aspects of university life. In collaboration with the Office of Academic Services, we assist and support students with special needs or disabilities to access reasonable services and accommodations.

If you are experiencing financial, personal, or family hardship that impacts your wellbeing and/or academic performance, you are advised to speak with a SWCC counselor, Director of Student Life, or Senior Associate Dean for Students in order to explore needs and provide appropriate referrals.  


Women’s Center

We celebrate women’s achievements and advocate for an environment that promotes social justice, free of all barriers and discrimination.
