If you encounter health or psychological difficulties, the University of Warsaw will not leave you alone.
The Office for Persons with Disabilities
The Office for Persons with Disabilities at the University of Warsaw provides services for all students with disabilities in formal meaning. Its main aim is to provide all the necessary forms of support to persons with disabilities. Our services are also dedicated to persons who are chronically ill or temporarily disabled and – due to their health conditions – are not able to follow the standard schedule of their studies. What is very important, a formal certificate of disability is not required – the situation is assessed on an individual basis.
Moreover, the Office for Persons with Disabilities gives an opportunity for free consultations with a psychiatrist. The character of those meetings is consultative: after recognizing the problem, the specialist advises an optimal form of support or treatment, for example, psychotherapy in an external medical centre. The meeting can be scheduled in person or by phone.
Please note that the OPD offers consultations with a psychiatrist. The psychologist is available at the Psychological Counselling Centre

Psychological Counselling Center
The Psychological Counselling Center (Centrum Pomocy Psychologicznej – CPP), opened in March 2018, provides professional counselling services for students and employees of the University of Warsaw. It offers short-term support, diagnosis, psycho-education, and crisis intervention.
Consultations are individual and free of charge. Each student is entitled to have three individual meetings in a semester.
Therapists guarantee confidentiality.
The centre is located on the first and second floors of the Faculty of Physics (Pasteura Street 7).
In an emergency situation, you can take an opportunity for a concise consultation without prior registration—a walk-in clinic.
In the near future, getting help via Skype will also be possible. This kind of help will be dedicated to students and employees of UW who are abroad, in hospitals, or are not able to leave their flats.
An initial diagnosis is made at the Psychological Counselling Centre, on the basis of which you may be referred for further consultation with a psychologist or psychiatrist (appointments with a psychiatrist can be made at the Office for Persons with Disabilities).
