Individual and Group Counseling Services
The University Counseling Center provides a variety of services including individual and group therapy, crisis support, consultation, and community referrals. This resource also offers individual therapy and can connect students with therapists in the local community.
The Counseling Center provides an LGBTQ and questioning support group as well as a trans and gender expansive identities group. The purpose of these groups is to provide a safe and affirming space where students can connect and share openly about their feelings and experiences.
In addition to medical, dental, physical therapy, and pharmacy services, University Health Center provides comprehensive care related to sexual health. The medical clinic provides annual exams, HPV vaccinations, and guidance regarding safer sex. The UHC STI Screening Clinic is a convenient way for students to get tested for sexually transmitted infections, including free HIV testing.
Latex barrier devices including condoms, finger cots, and dental dams are available free throughout the health center, as well as free lube. Free sexual health supplies are also available at the Duck Nest wellness center in the EMU.
Student Health Insurance
The UO partners with PacificSource to provide the Student Health Benefits Plan, a comprehensive health plan including 24/7 coverage anywhere in the world, platinum-level medical and prescription drug coverage, and low costs. As of 2010, student health insurance covers hormone and surgical treatment just like any other student medical need—meaning it is subject to the same maximums, copays, and policies.
Transgender Support Services
The UO supports our Ducks through their gender transition and accessing LGBTQIA inclusive services with a multitude of resources and programs. The LGBT Education and Support Services aims to make these processes as accessible and affirming as possible. If you have any questions about these resources or would like support, please contact the coordinator, Haley Wilson, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Transgender Care Team
If you experience gender dysphoria, are seeking gender confirmation procedures such as hormone replacement therapy or surgeries, and require a letter of support, the transgender care team at the Counseling Center is happy to help. The first step is call 541-346-3227 or stop by the Counseling Center to schedule an initial appointment. When you schedule the appointment, please inform the staff that you are seeking an evaluation for hormone therapy or surgical procedures related to your gender identity. This will ensure that you are seen by a member of the team.
