Your time to focus on you. WELLNESS


Healthier, happier, and never alone. At Hampshire College, we offer you a comprehensive approach to health and wellness, where we consider your physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. If you’re on campus, you have access to our Health and Counseling Ser vices, the Wellness Center, Outdoor Programs, Recreation, and Athletics (OPR A), and Spiritual Life. There are also resources available to you like telehealth and in-person appointments at UMass Amherst University Health Ser vices, and emergency care at Cooley Dickinson Hospital, as well as an abundance of practitioners and ser vice providers in Amherst and Northampton.


The Wellness Center At the Wellness Center, we offer health education and promote wellness on topics such as healthy relationships; bystander intervention and preventing sexual violence; preventing alcohol and other drug abuse; self-care; developing resilience; sexual health; sleep health; and campus and community resources.

Spiritual Life Here at Hampshire, we believe that spiritual well-being is a key component of holistic wellness, and that it’s integrally connected to social justice. Our Spiritual Life office strives to offer programs that enable you to explore these connections while engaging all of our community in vital questions of meaning, purpose, and how we live in the world.
