The Office of Student Wellness empowers individual students in cultivating lifelong practices of personal wellbeing.

The mission of the Office of Student Wellness is to engage all people who are part of Wellesley College in creating a campus community in which students thrive in all facets of their lives. The Office’s work serves to advance the mission of the Division of Student Life and that of Wellesley College

Our goal is to optimize wellness, now and for the future by empowering all students to live full, balanced lives and find their own unique ways of thriving. We encourage personal responsibility for achieving and maintaining wellness and will support your journey through education and enrichment to reach your highest potential.
