We want you to be safe — and well — at UC Davis. It’s a partnership. The campus offers opportunities for creating and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and you pick and choose what works for you.
UC Davis has multiple fun ways for you to stay fit, starting with our Activities and Recreation Center. Students have unlimited access because the center is paid for through your registration fees. Here you can find group classes, dancing, martial arts, personal training and rock climbing, to name a few offerings.
Balancing your life
Being well is about balancing your life. Get enough sleep (check out our Nap Map), drink enough water (ditto for our Hydration Map), reduce stress and eat your fruits and veggies (yes, we have a map for that, too!). Speaking of food, we offer free cooking classes to students taught by a chef who shows you how to prepare meals for your nutritional needs.
Wellness is a deep concept
The center offers a wealth of information for you. You might just wonder what wellness is and how it relates to you personally. Also, you can find out about health topics from A to Z and follow the SHCS blog to keep current on health news.
When you need medical care
When medical care is needed, students use Student Health and Counseling Services, rated by a 2015 Princeton Review of colleges for being the best in the nation. Although we don’t have an emergency room, we can help with urgent and other medical problems.
