Welcome Student Health Outreach & Promotion (SHOP)

SHOP is UCSC's Student Health Outreach and Promotion Program and a destination for information. We are located in the Student Health Center, across the street from Colleges 9 & 10. As you walk up the ramp to the Health Center, SHOP is located in the building on your left, next to the Pharmacy. SHOP is where students can go to learn about health and wellness in a safe, non-judgmental environment.

SHOP offers information, education, resources and support on issues such as Alcohol and other Drug Use, Sexually Transmitted Infections, Rape Crisis Counseling, and Sexual Health, Holistic Health and Stress Management. All UCSC students are welcome and encouraged to drop in and speak with SHOP's trained staff.
