Health, Wellness & Safety

Student Recreation CenterWe make sure you have the resources to stay healthy, be safe, and feel well so you can actively pursue that idea for a new club on campus, or the theory you came up with during a meeting with your chemistry professor, or your personal best on your run around the trails at Thousand Hills State Park.

Student Recreation Center
Our workout facilities in the Student Recreation Center has a weight room, treadmills, multiple gymnasiums, and cardio equipment. You can also participate in aerobics classes, intramural sports, outdoor adventures, workshops, and more.

Student Health Center
The Student Health Center keeps you healthy—or gets you back on the road to recovery when you need it. Our nurses and collaborating physician treat acute illnesses and minor injuries, give immunizations, educate patients, and provide reproductive health services, among other things.

Counseling Services
Students have access to counseling services to help improve your mental health and well-being. The counselors provide for a wide range of mental and behavioral matters, including anxiety, depression, adjustment, relationships, alcohol and drug issues, eating disorders and other problems.

Campus Safety
Truman has a full-service police department that patrols campus 24 hours a day, provides educational materials on crime and safety awareness, gives self-defense training, and maintains the security of our residence halls. In the event of an emergency, a text emergency-response system called TruAlert keeps members of the Truman community informed.


Truman provides its students with an abundance of opportunities that prepare us for success. The number of resources we have on our campus for academic support, emotional support, social support, career support, financial support, and so many others is truly incredible and is something I feel fortunate to have available to me.
