What does The Well do?

The Well is a part of a collaborative division called Student Health, Well-being and Safety, which offers campus-wide resources and programming designed to promote and support students' holistic well-being. The Well is UCR's student health promotion and health education department. We provide programs, resources, services and opportunities for student development related to health and wellness. 

Seeking counseling/
emotional assistance?

The Well does not provide any type of clinical or therapy service. We can assist you in getting connected with The Counseling Center or the Case Manager, who can provide this support. Case Managers work with students whose life situation, emotional health, or family stresses are negatively impacting their academic performance, or their conduct on campus.

Where do I get condoms?

Free condoms are available at The Well during walk-in hours through our grab-and-go. Free condoms are also available at Student Health Services, Women's Resource Center, and the LGBT Resource Center. The Well provides an abundance of programming related to sexual health, in addition to a student group, Golden ARCHES, that addresses this topic. To review a schedule of upcoming sexual health events, visit the Events tab above.

I need to study or eat lunch. Can I go to The Well?

Due to limited space,  The Well will only be open for students to pick up items or ask questions. Our lobby is closed for studying or eating lunch. However, The Well will also have a new satellite lounge site at the new SHS and CAPS building in which students can visit.

I want to make a friend/meet new people. Can The Well help?

The Well has three peer groups in which students can apply to volunteer and get an opportunity to meet new folks. We also have several events throughout the year in which students can participate. For more information on volunteer opportunities or upcoming events, please check out our Instagram page @thewelucr. 

I’m interested in learning how to become more active. Where do I start?

The Well events can be found on the calendar of events on our website, including our weekly drop-in walking and running group called Peanut Butter & Jogging. The Student Recreation Center provides everything you need to remain active, including independent weight and cardio workouts, group exercise classes, and intramural sports. Your registration fee provides you with access to the Student Recreation Center, so take advantage of all it has to offer.

What health services do you provide?
