Be Well Bruin

At a large university, keeping track of resources can feel overwhelming. To help, we have recently launched the Be Well Bruin website — a hub for health and well-being resources for students. By visiting this website, you can:

• Utilize robust search and filtering features to find personalized resources
• Access the Be Well Bruin Assessment to better understand the areas where UCLA can best support you
• Find community through recommended student organizations, events and programs
• Use the tools and information provided to take a proactive approach in your health and well-being

Be Well Bruin is committed to increasing students’ access to health and well-being services. We believe that promotion, advocacy and education can have a significant impact on the student experience.
