Mental Health

Getting an undergraduate or graduate degree is stressful; a journey with many ups and downs. You can always come and talk with Becca about your struggles, but if you seek help from elsewhere, here are some campus resources:

Legal Services

UW Student Legal Services (SLS) is an on-campus law office located in HUB 306 that offers FREE 40-minute consultations on a multitude of legal matters. They provide a safe and confidential space for all UW-Seattle students (undergraduate, graduate, and professional) who have legal questions or concerns.

Students seek assistance from SLS for issues such as:

  • Landlord/Tenant

  • Discrimination

  • Immigration

  • Protection Orders

  • Name and gender markers

  • Estate planning (wills, powers of attorney, healthcare directives)

  • Criminal and traffic

  • Auto collisions and insurance

  • Many other issues

The office educates students about their rights and responsibilities, provides legal advice and resources, negotiates disputes, represents students in court, and prepares students for small claims matters. In addition, they offer general informational sessions and "how-to" presentations on a variety of legal matters, such as knowledge of rights.

Positive Educational & Work Enrionment

Everyone deserves to work and learn in an environment that is free of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation; and the University of Washington has an explicit policy in place (Executive Order 31) focused on promoting such an environment: “The University of Washington, as an institution established and maintained by the people of the state, is committed to providing equality of opportunity and an environment that fosters respect for all members of the University community.” University policies prohibiting discrimination and harassment apply to supervisors and managers, all co-workers, faculty and other academic personnel, student employees, students, and third parties, such as clients, vendors, contractors, patients, donors, volunteers, and other members of the public. University policies can apply in off-campus circumstances if those circumstances involve work colleagues or affect work outcomes.

If you, or someone you know, are impacted by discrimination or harassment, the University has resources to help you take action.

If you are interested in getting bystander training to identify and interrupt instances of interpersonal violence, you can participate in UW's Green Dot program.
