The Student Health Centre offers counselling to Lund University students. Our staff work primarily with psychological problems that affect your ability to study, such as stress, worry, anxiety, depression, transitional issues and/or academic difficulties. This is in addition to other public and private health clinics where you can go for general medical issues, sexual health and contraception.
All information shared by you with our staff is held in the strictest confidence and is not communicated to anyone without your permission, except in the rare instance of a life-threatening situation.

You can book a first meeting with one of our counsellors via our web form. In this first meeting, that under the current circumstances will be a phone meeting instead of a physical one, we will discuss what kind of difficulties or problems you are experiencing and together we will look at the way forward.
We will call you up at the booked time and you will get to speak to one of our counsellors. The conversation will take approximately 20 minutes.
Click on the link below to book an appointment via our web form. We publish new time slots every week. If you don't see any time slots, this means that there are no available time slots for the time being. Can't you find a time slot? Try again the next day – someone may have cancelled their appointment. If you have found a time that suits you, fill in your contact details, most importantly your phone number so we will be able to reach you at the time you booked.
The first meeting always works in the same way, regardless of the counsellor you book an appointment with.
Book an appointment via our web form on lu.se* (English instructions in PDF below).
*All meetings booked through this link will be in English.
The web form is in Swedish, however. Find instructions in English here (PDF 18 kB, new window).
If you are Swedish-speaking and if you would like to book an appointment in Swedish, please book through our webpage on lu.se.
If you are a doctoral student, you should turn to the Occupational Health Service for health counselling.
Personal data sent via open networks
The personal data that is transferred from the web form to the Student Health medical records system is encrypted and will not be saved anywhere else. The confirmation email is sent automatically and is not encrypted. It only mentions time and place, and not who you are going to meet.
Please accept the script if your browser requests it. Otherwise, the website may not be fully functional.
