The Student Wellbeing Office supports student development
and success by providing a good first point of contact for students who want to
talk to someone about solutions to their wellbeing concerns. We connect with
students in the residential colleges, graduate apartments, and other student
spaces around campus to give advice and practical support to help students
resolve personal challenges, such as conflicts with friends, difficulty making
decisions, struggling with your identity, and academic concerns or problems
that are more serious in nature. We also consult with students, faculty, and
staff who have concerns about a particular student in distress.
We refer students to the Rice Counseling Center for mental health treatment.
Our wellbeing staff help students in these key ways:
Individual Support Resources
- Meet with a wellbeing advisor to talk about your wellbeing concerns
- Learn about options for medical/wellbeing separations and returns
- Receive support if you have experienced a crisis or traumatic event
- Speak with a Title IX Resource Navigator if you have concerns about or have experienced an incident of sexual misconduct or sex discrimination
- Provide education on alcohol, sexual violence
prevention and response, and mental health through small group conversations, large
group workshops, and campus-wide presentations

that requires immediate medical or law enforcement attention, go to the nearest
