University Resources:

    • Mental Health
Student Health and Wellness The Student Health and Wellness center (SHaW) provides health and wellness programs to promote the wellbeing of the student body. Through SHaW, students have access to various mental health resources such as the Circle of Care, therapy, and crisis support. 
      • Sexual Health
    Student Health and Wellness The Student Health and Wellness center (SHaW) provides health and wellness programs to promote the well-being of the student body. USG has recently partnered with SHaW to provide Plan B at no cost to undergraduate students with a valid UCONN ID. Students can also purchase a generic form of Plan B at the SHaW Pharmacy.
        • Food Insecurity 
      UCONN Hunger Swipes Program Swipe Out Hunger, is a nationwide program that collaborates with colleges to help put an end to student hunger and assist those who struggle with food insecurity. Students can participate in this at UCONN by letting dining staff know that they would like to donate a flex pass. The donation will be sent to UCONN Swipes where it will be distributed to students in need. To see if you qualify for the program, schedule an appointment with the Assistant Dean.
