Student Health and Wellness

Whether your goal is to improve your health, stay fit, find support, or feel better, the Student Health and Wellness team is here to help and empower you. Our services and programs are designed to promote a healthy lifestyle during your time at college and for years to come.

Impact of COVID-19 on Student Health and Wellness

The worldwide pandemic involving COVID-19 (coronavirus) has produced unprecedented challenges in the UConn community and around the world. Our main focus continues to be protecting all individual and population health, but there is now a shift to reducing the University mission as much as possible except for critical activities. As we adjust to this shift, please use the links under Our Services to check availability of services and programs.

Managing Mental Health During the Pandemic

As each day brings new updates, possibly with worrying or confusing information about COVID-19 (coronavirus), we each respond to this stress in our own ways. Everyone is different—our various thoughts, emotions and reactions are normal in the face of such widespread uncertainty.

Join us TODAY and every Tuesday for Recovery Yoga!

We combine trusted recovery meeting formats with pranayama breathing and vinyasa yoga. This practice of breathing between vulnerable stories & feelings has been proven to calm the mind and help to re-wire our brain to lessen any negative emotions.

This is a safe space for those who struggle with addiction, affected by and/or support the recovery lifestyle.

Staying is safe is more important now than ever before! 💯

Just head to studenthealth.uconn.edu/gloveBOX and submit your order! 📅 Our first shipment will go out on Tuesday, September 1st.

As a reminder, students living on campus should follow all health and safety procedures set forth by Reslife, and be familiar with guest and physical distancing policies before engaging in sexual activity. 😷 For more information about safer-sex during a pandemic, visit www.studenthealth.uconn.edu/health-promotion/sexual-health.
