WesWell, the Office of Health Education, is an integral part of Wesleyan University's Health Services. WesWell understands the impact of student health on academic performance and is committed to providing services that are designed to develop healthy behaviors and prevent health concerns that may interfere with academic and personal success. To learn more about our staff and how to contact us click here.

WesWell is dedicated to being an accessible resource for all students on campus. The WesWell office is not an accessible building; stairs are required to enter the building and access the second floor. WesWell does not have a ramp or elevator. If you would like to participate in a WesWell event or need access to the resources in the Resource Room and the physical attributes of our building would impact your ability to do so, please email weswell@wesleyan.edu to let us know so we can secure an alternate location or assist you in getting the wellness resources you need.

Collaboration & Co-Sponsorships: WesWell actively seeks out opportunities to collaborate on health education events and co-sponsor programs with other student organizations throughout the year. If your organization is planning a health-related event and is looking for ideas or resources, you are encouraged to discuss it with a WesWell staff member early in your planning stages in order to see how we might be of assistance.
