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.
