The Wellness Centre believes that a healthy mind, body, and spirit are foundations for students to achieve their personal and academic goals. You can connect with trained students to navigate campus services, talk to a peer about what is going on for you, and learn about managing stress, sleep, eating well and living well as a student.
The Wellness Centre physical space in the Life Building is closed until further notice. The Centre is offering the following virtual services.
