    Rice will subsidize half of the cost of meetings for benefits-eligible faculty and staff for either the online Weight Watchers Program, or local community meetings (at this time, we no longer have enough participation to hold meetings on campus). The program is now on a month-to-month basis.

    To enroll, visit http://wellness.weightwatchers.com and use the following employer ID and password under the "New Registration" box:

    • Company ID = 28327
    • Company Passcode = fyPMoVnL

    Once you log in, you will enter your information exactly as it is listed with Rice (specifically, your name, birth date and "Unique ID" which is your employee ID (for example, "E00001234").

    For additional instructions on how to use the new Weight Watchers portal, click here. If you are still experiencing difficulties with the system, please call the Weight Watchers help desk at 1-866-204-2885.

    The cost of the program is $39.95 per month (or $19.97 per month with the 50% subsidy).

    You may enter the program at any time (at a prorated cost) -- simply go to the portal above or one of the scheduled meetings for more information.
