What’s Up This Month in the SHPRC?

Open for Dead Week
The SHPRC will be open during all of Dead Week, but will be closed during finals. This week’s your last chance to stock up before break starts!

Hours of Operation
The SHPRC is open Monday through Friday, from 12-6pm. We are located on the second floor of Vaden Health Center. If you have a question you’d rather call in, our phone number is (650) SAFE-SEX. The SHPRC is an LGBT-friendly space, and counseling is 100% confidential.
