Student Resources & Wellness
The health and well-being of our students is our top priority. At USD, we provide students with access to free or reduced services for any mental, emotional or physical needs.
Emotional, Mental & Physical Wellness
The USD Wellness Center will have something your active body and mind will love. Push yourself to new heights and achieve your fitness goals through weightlifting, group fitness classes, our state-of-the-art climbing wall, the DakotaDome pool and more.
Your college years can be filled with new and enriching experiences but can also present challenges which may interfere with your academic progress and emotional well-being. The Student Counseling Center's (SCC) goal is to offer you any support and resources you may need to make the most of your years here at USD. On our website you will find information about our services, staff, campus resources, crisis management and how to refer someone. There are also links to self-help tools and general health information.
