Welcome to your Wellbeing place

The UTEP Wellbeing website is designed to be a one stop shop on topics related to student health and wellbeing. Our goal is to connect you with offices, services, programs, and events that support our six primary areas of wellbeing: physical, emotional, financial, intellectual, environmental, and social. We will also provide resources related to campus safety. Most services / programs are limited to students based on financial support primarily from student service fees.
