Below is a list of links with information about various wellness resources for UT students. These resources address various aspects of wellness, including mental and physical health and alcohol/other drugs.
Mindfulness
We understand that the COVID-19 situation may be creating a sense of panic, anxiety and unease. We encourage you to practice mindfulness, the act of being engaged and aware of the present moment, to keep you anchored in the present, while your mind may be wandering into the past or into the future. There are several ways to creatively practice mindfulness. Here are a few:
  • UT’s  Ajivar App for resiliency, mindfulness, meditation and emotional intelligence
  • Meditation via the app  HeadspaceCalm, or  Insight Timer.
  • Utilizing your spiritual connection to stay grounded and spiritually  fit.
  • Intentional, mindful movement (yoga, running, walking, weight lifting, etc.)

    University of Tampa Recovery Community

    The University of Tampa (UT) Collegiate Recovery Community (UTRC) is a part of LiveWell UT through Wellness Services located on the second floor of the Dickey Health and Wellness Center. This is a new program that started in the fall of 2016 and is slowly evolving. University of Tampa Recovery Community is a safe space for UT students struggling with addiction and substance abuse to come together and support each other. The primary purpose is to support recovering students by sharing the goals of providing support, preventing relapse and promoting academic performance. Students can engage with and seek support from students who are also in recovery as well as have access to supportive faculty and staff members on the UT campus. Students can utilize the second floor of the Wellness Center as needed, which consists of meeting space, student computers and break room area. Space is reserved on campus for weekly meetings. We do not currently offer dedicated housing through the UTRC but work closely with students, residence life staff and community partners to establish the best living arrangements possible for interested students. The advisor of this organization is Gina Firth, associate dean of wellness.
