Wellness Library 


The Wellness Center Library is housed in the reception room of the Wellness Center. It features materials which may be checked out by all undergraduate and graduate students at no charge. We have over 600 credible and up-to-date books, CDs, DVDs, pamphlets and other media related to physical and emotional wellness.  Many items are available in quantity for students who are planning educational presentations.

Topics include stress management, sleep hygiene, alcohol abuse, nutrition, body image, eating disorders, relationships, self-esteem, sexual health, spirituality and much more. We encourage students to take a look at the resources the Wellness Center offers. We consider it the "other" Rice education. 

Take care of your mind, body and soul... Come by the Wellness Center and check it out! 

*Note that the library catalog does not show item availability, please call or visit the Wellness Center to check for item availability.
