Student Spouses & Partners

Partners and spouses of students who are studying on Cornell’s Ithaca campus have access to nearly all Cornell Health services.

Services for spouses and partners include:

Counseling and support:

Individual counseling and psychiatry services are only available to full-time registered students. However, student spouses and partners may take advantage of couples counseling through Cornell Health. To get started, students should schedule an appointment for a brief phone assessment, during which they can request couples counseling.
