To have every student live a healthy and active lifestyle.

Student Wellness and Facilities Services promotes life-long behaviors that lead to a healthier and happier life. We enhance the BYU experience by providing facilities, programs and services that inspire and assist individuals in becoming their best selves.

Wellness is the active pursuit of your best self.


Our work is shaped by values organized within five foci; Inspired, Inclusive, Individual, Intentional, and Innovative. These “5I’s” form the approach to our work and department goals.


  • We strive to fulfill the BYU mission, aims and goals.
  • We are a unified team of experts that model wellness behaviors.


  • Wellness is holistic and comprised of six dimensions. (Physical, Spiritual, Emotional, Financial, Intellectual and Social)
  • We are a partner that collaborates across campus to serve students.
  • Diverse experiences and perspectives are necessary to discover and develop wellness.


  • Student health and wellness directly impacts academic and personal success.
  • Each individual has their own path to wellness.
  • Wellness contributes to a sense of belonging at BYU.


  • Wellness requires purposeful effort and support.
  • Our department develops students through frequent interactions and meaningful employment.
  • Research and assessment guide our services and practice.


  • We plan for the future with vision, inspiration and innovation.
  • We provide safe, modern equipment, facilities, programs and services.


Student Wellness and Facilities Services enhances the student experience through six operational areas: Facilities Services, Intramural Activities, Wellness Programs, Extramural Sports, Outdoors Unlimited, and SWELL Courses.
