Committed to Student Health and Wellness
We are committed to student wellness at Colorado School of Mines. Through the student health fee, Mines is able to provide access to health services for all Mines students regardless of insurance.
The W. Lloyd Wright Student Wellness Center was built in 2012 and honors longtime school physician Dr. W. Lloyd Wright and carries forward his legacy of service and dedication by promoting health and wellness among the campus community.
Dr. Wright served Mines for more than two decades, having settled in Golden in 1946 after serving in WWII. A graduate of the University of Colorado School of Medicine, he practiced in Golden from 1946 until 1980, serving Mines until 1968 and later holding medical director positions at Coors Brewery and Rocky Flats. The university awarded Dr. Wright the Mines Medal in 1986 for his personal and professional contributions to the campus community. The W. Lloyd Wright Student Wellness Center was named in his honor by Wright’s nephew, Steve Mooney, ’56, and his wife, Gayle, as a tribute to the high standards of care that Dr. Wright embodied in his career.
In the spirit of Dr. Wright’s legacy, the Wellness Center is home to several offices that provide health-related services to Mines students. Offices located in the Wellness Center are the Health Center, Counseling Center, Dental Office, Disability Support Services, Title IX Office and Insurance Office. Providing these services in one location is convenient for students when addressing their health care needs.
