Student Health & Wellness Center
————— & —————
The Student Health & Wellness Center is a core component of the University’s efforts to offer the best possible student experience.
Your gift to the Student Health & Wellness Center will set students on the path to good health for their lives ahead, giving them the foundation to make the most of an excellent education.
THE HEART OF WELLNESS
Providing increasing services to a growing number of students requires a great deal more space. Critical core service areas housed in the building will promote total health.

Promoting Total Health
Natural light will fill the entrance as well as all three floors of the new facility. The glass-walled reception area provides a bridge between the building’s north and south structures.
Featuring space for clinical, educational, and research activities in a welcoming environment, the center will house five core areas: General Medicine, Women’s Health, Counseling and Psychological Services, Student Disability Access Center, and Health Promotion. The Department of Kinesiology in the Curry School of Education and Human Development will also be located in the new facility.
Students Are Our Priority
Student well-being is our highest priority. Our goal is to provide student the best chance for good health and success.
“The new center will enable us to take student health care to a new level and to be on equal footing with our peers. I am excited to say this new facility will set the state for providing a complete spectrum of care and service.”
The University of Virginia has acquired Brandon Avenue and the surrounding property. Transforming the street with park-like landscaping features will expand the Grounds and connect student life across the University.
Currently a dark, narrow road lined with cars and ending at the railroad tracks, Brandon Avenue will be transformed into a walkable and bikeable community, promoting outdoor activities and engagement in a healthy lifestyle for the entire neighborhood.
“Katie and I have raised our four children with a firm belief that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. I believe, for similar reasons, that the University needs to focus as much on wellness and healthy habits as on responses to illness, injury, and distress. That’s why the new Student Health & Wellness Center is a critical priority for UVA and one I strongly support.”
Green Street Living
The center’s focus on comprehensive health and wellness throughout the student experience is integrated in its design and conception within the Green Street landscape plan.
The Green Street space features a park-like setting of broad sidewalks, flowering trees, and ornamental grasses, with a diagonal walkway leading to the center entrance. A nearby pond and other natural elements will invite relaxation and recreation.
