About the team at the Wellness Centre

Wellness Peer educators

Wellness Peers are a trained group of graduate and undergraduate student volunteers (about 30 students each year) with a passion for wellness. Wellness Peer educators help staff the UBC Wellness Centre from September to April and run wellness activities across campus.

Wellness Peers can help:

  • Answer your health and wellness questions
  • Provide information about other campus resources 
  • Partner with you on wellness-related events or workshops

Ask them questions like how to eat well on a budget, how to make friends, where to go if you’d like more help taking care of your health, and much more.

All Wellness Peers have received training in sexual health and sexuality, campus resources, and a range of topics related to holistic student health and wellness (e.g., nutrition, sleep, etc.). You will often see Wellness Peers at campus events including faculty wellness fairs, outreach booths and during campus-wide events like Thrive.

For graduate students who prefer to talk to graduate peers, please visit us during designated Graduate Peer hours.
