UC Davis Student Health and Wellness Center
The UC Davis Student Health & Wellness Center utilizes the newest technology and the latest trends in student healthcare to enhance student visits and delivery of care.
The UC Davis Student Health & Wellness Center opened on March 29, 2010. This state-of-the-art facility offers 75,000 gross square feet and 43,000 assignable square feet that houses the functions of SHCS Medical Services. The Student Health & Wellness Center utilizes the newest technology and the latest trends in student healthcare to enhance student visits and delivery of care. It replaces the Cowell Student Health Center and allows SHCS Medical Services to meet enrollment demands, improve accessibility, and support students’ academic successes.
Utilizing sustainable design elements in the areas of water & energy efficiency, materials usage, and environmental quality, this building exceeds the UC Regent’s Policy for Green Building Design and has been awarded Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold Certification. This project also exceeds California Building Standards Code (Title 24) by at least 35%.
At the Student Health & Wellness Center, SHCS Medical Services will continue to provide quality and cost-sensitive care tailored to the unique and diverse needs of students. This includes services such as primary care, specialty care, urgent care, diagnostic services, mental health support, health promotion, and wellness programs. This building is at the heart of the SHCS Medical Services mission, which is to provide campus health and wellness resources that enable students to successfully achieve their academic goals and promote lifelong wellness.
