Peer Health is a student-run organization at Williams College that provides the Williams community with information about health and sexuality. You can find more information at We serve as a bridge between the student body and Psychology Services and the Health Center. We also provide gynecological education sessions and anonymous pregnancy testing, as well as information sessions for first-year entries. Issues that Peer Health deals with are: eating concerns, drugs and alcohol, sexual assault, women's and men's health, sex and sexuality, pregnancy options, sexually transmitted diseases, and stress. All Peer Health members are trained during Winter Study. If you are interested in being trained in the coming Winter Study, please email <email></email>.

In past years, Peer Health had an office in the basement of Baxter Hall. It is currently located on the second floor of the Paresky Center, Room 212. There are walk in hours Sun.-Thurs. 7 p.m.-10p.m. if you want talk about anything. You can also IM us on AIM, HealthyEphs. There is also the old-fashioned version of communication, the telephone. The phone number to Peer Healh is (413) 597-3140. You can also email us at <email></email>.

To get condoms:

  1. Make friends with a peer health member! (This actually might not get you condoms, but is a good thing to do anyways!)
  2. Go down to the health center, which supplies free condoms for all students.
  3. Talk to you HC/JA about where their condom bowl is! It should be available and non-empty at all times!
