Welcome to SHOP

SHOP is UCSC's Student Health Outreach and Promotion Program and a destination for information. 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 and Sexual Health, and College Life balance. All UCSC students are welcome and encouraged to drop in and speak with SHOP's trained staff.


Overdose Prevention

An overdose happens when the body is overwhelmed by a drug or poison. A toxic effect occurs once the body can no longer process the amount of drug or chemical being put into it. Though the body can heal itself, sometimes death or permanent organ damage can instantly occur. 

Contact SHOP

SHOP is 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.
