GatorWell Residential Outreach, in collaboration with University of Florida Housing and Residence Education, is a partnership designed to educate students on health and wellness services and resources to enhance their own personal health and well being. Students will learn about health and wellness related campus resources, learn to develop healthy lifestyle practices, and engage in activities that encourage balance and personal growth. Jennings and Springs are both Residential Living and Learning Communities. The primary purposes of these communities are to give students an opportunity to expand the learning experience by building health and wellness into their living community and set the foundation for a healthy way of life.
