Wellness Center

General Information

The Wellness Center provides health education resources and programs for AU community. Our mission is to provide students with wellness resources, to promote healthy lifestyles, reduce risk behaviors and offer a safe, non-discriminatory environment. 

The primary goal of the Wellness Center is to help students develop positive, healthy lifestyles which will endure throughout a lifetime. Our free services and educational programs are based in the philosophy that wellness encompasses many dimensions, including physical, emotional, spiritual and social wellness. 

Advocacy Services

The Wellness Center also houses OASIS: the Office of Advocacy Services for Interpersonal and Sexual Violence. OASIS provides free and confidential services to anyone in the campus community who is affected by sexual violence, interpersonal violence (dating or domestic violence), and stalking. 

Advocacy is a supportive service intended to help survivors navigate their options and make informed decisions about their security, health, academic well-being, and the adjudication process.

Confiding in an advocate does not mean you must report an incident to university administrators or the police. If you have any questions or concerns about confidentiality, an advocate can provide clarifying examples. Email us at OASIS@american.edu or call 202-885-7070 to schedule an appointment. 

Wellness Center/OASIS Hours: 9:00 am-5:00 pm, Monday-Friday 
Location: McCabe Building, on the opposite side of the Health Center, near Fletcher Gate.

Please note: Advocacy and consult services are by appointment only.
