Student Wellbeing

Some students are thriving, some are striving, and others are barely surviving.

Today’s students work incredibly hard, and feel pressure to work even harder. And when they’re not working, there are stressors that demand a different kind of work. But here’s the thing: we know that when students feel better, they perform better. To perform at full potential, students need to be able to occasionally step back, see the big picture, and sometimes try doing things differently.

Student Wellbeing is a campus-wide initiative to support students’ health and wellbeing during their time at BU. We believe that everyone deserves to feel good and that how students feel matters. Our collective goal — as administrators, faculty, and staff — is to inspire our students to feel fulfilled each day, despite the ups and downs of life on campus.

Where do I look?" This list of campus resources, filtered by type of wellbeing you are looking to support, is the perfect place to start.
