Caring for Your Well-being

The UO is here to support you through life’s challenges, providing on-campus resources to enhance your wellness and help you thrive.

There are many components to being healthy—physically, mentally, and emotionally. Taking care of yourself may mean consulting with a physician when you are sick, talking to a therapist if you are struggling, or forming rich relationships with those you live, play, and study with. University Health Services provides comprehensive medical and mental health services on campus. Our providers are experts in college health and are here to help you achieve your full academic and personal potential.

Getting support is different for everyone. That’s why Counseling Services offers a wide range of strategies—from one-on-one therapy to attending a discussion group or workshop—to best fit the needs of individual students.

This commitment to your well-being stretches beyond the walls of our state-of-the-art health facility. Take yoga classes at the Student Recreation Center that include mindful breathing. Eat nutritious, locally sourced food in our dining halls. Engage with peer health educators who are here to assist you in developing self-care and life balance. Do you have a passion for personal well-being? There is even an academic residential community where you can live with others to purposefully support each other.

In every corner of our campus, you will find people working to help you be healthy and resilient on your path to success.

Find Your Fit

When you're giving academics your best, we know it's also important to take a break.

It may be weekly meditation and yoga, a pick-up basketball game after class, or exploring forested paths on weekends—at the UO we value balance and making time to incorporate activity and wellness into our schedules. Our state-of-the-art Student Recreation Center offers fitness classes and activity courses. We offer many options for you to improve your physical health.
