We would like to take a moment to introduce, or reintroduce, you to the Cañada College Wellness Center. Located in Room 303 on the 3rd floor of Building 5 (around the corner from The Grove) the Wellness Center includes the Health Center, the Disability Resource Center (DRC), and the Personal Counseling Center (PCC). The Wellness Center was rebranded to help unify all three programs and provide a safe and central place for students who need personal assistance.
Open Monday through Thursday 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Many services are 100% free to students!
