UC Davis Student Health and Wellness Center
The Student Health and Wellness Center is one of the two primary locations for services provided by Student Health and Counseling Services (SHCS). SHCS provides quality and cost-sensitive care tailored to the unique and diverse needs of students. This building is at the heart of the SHCS mission, which is to provide campus health and wellness resources that enable students to successfully achieve their academic goals and promote lifelong wellness.
Location and Parking
The Student Health & Wellness Center is located on La Rue Road between Hutchison Drive and Orchard Road, across the street from the Activities and Recreation Center (ARC) and next to the Colleges at La Rue.
Access to the closest parking lot (35) is on Orchard Road. A limited number of patient parking spots are available in Lot 35 for students being seen at SHCS Medical Services. These parking spots are located in front of the Main Entrance and are not guaranteed. Ask for a patient parking permit from the Information Desk at the Main Entrance to place in your car when you arrive.
If patient parking spots are full, A/C/L permit parking, day permit parking, and metered parking spots are also available in lot 35 and in nearby lots.
LEED Gold Certified
Utilizing sustainable design elements in the areas of water & energy efficiency, materials usage, and environmental quality, the Student Health and Wellness Center 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%.
The Harvest Garden
The mission of the Student Health and Wellness Center’s Harvest Garden is to increase awareness of the benefits and enjoyment of fresh fruit and vegetable consumption. The Harvest Garden is located on the south side of the Student Health and Wellness Center, inside the greater Wellness Garden. It is a small, well loved, and organically grown garden cared for by Health Education and Promotion student staff and volunteers. We welcome visitors to our garden and encourage those that visit to read and be mindful of our signs. We hope you enjoy the beautiful plants and peaceful atmosphere.
