Student Wellness Center

The Student Wellness Center supports the overall health of the campus community by providing a spectrum of services including psychological care and encouraging overall physical well-being through our campus staff and community partners.

Student Health Center Beach Fitness

We refer students to medical services, provide confidential counseling services and wellness education, and assist with health requirements such as information forms, immunization records and health insurance.

Marymount does not have a medical provider on-campus, but our staff can connect you to a local medical provider. You may also call the number on your health insurance card for a listing of local providers.

What to do in emergencies

Dial 911
For life-threatening emergencies.

Call the anonymous Marymount tip line
(310) 303-7373 (on campus, ext. 7373)

To confidentially report dangerous behaviors on campus, in student housing, alcohol or drug activity or any concern for another student. This is not a substitute for calling 911!

Schedule an appointment

To schedule a counseling appointment, you may call (310) 303-7244 or E-Mail: Wellness@Marymountcalifornia.edu. Virtual or telephone appointments available as well as limited in-person appointments (to be determined by the treating clinician and SWC Director).

Help your fellow students

Our peer educator groups are a fun way to get to know — and to improve the lives of — your fellow Mariners. To get involved, contact our office at wellness@marymountcalifornia.edu.
