Health & Wellness at UW: Home

Take Care!

It can be overwhelming on a large campus to locate resources to support your health and wellness, particularly in times of uncertainty and change. The resources below are meant to point you to specific campus resources for community-building, mental health and safety.

If you are experiencing fear, harassment or violence on or off campus, report it and find safety.

If you experience unsafety or fear in the libraries, please don't hesitate to approach any staff member and we will work with you to find safety for you and take appropriate actions.

Light Therapy Lamps now available at the Health Sciences Library

Feeling the effects of Seattle's gloomy winters?

The University of Washington Health Sciences Library currently has three Lumie Vitamin L light therapy lamps available for in-library use. Research demonstrates that bright lamps can provide benefits to wellness by reducing stress and fatigue and improving focus, alertness, and more.

Visit the HSL information desk by the upper floor entrance to check out a lamp.
