Peer Support & Wellness Centre


The Wellness Centre is open on a drop-in basis and is staffed by trained student volunteers known as Wellness Peers.

Wellness Peers have a passion for mental and physical health promotion and can share health resources with students, help provide information about great campus resources, and partner with students on wellness related events. Speaking with another student can give students insight into how other students manage stress, the best ways to prepare and eat good food on a budget, how to make friends on such a large campus, and where to go if students would like more help taking care of their wellbeing.
