Wellness Centre

At the Wellness Centre, Wellness Peer Educators are trained student volunteers who can answer your questions, talk with you, and recommend resources for everyday concerns related to health, relationships, and workload.

If you’re a student leader interested in partnering on wellness workshops, events, and more, email the Wellness Centre. Ask to speak with a Health Promotion Specialist, a staff member who oversees the Wellness Centre.

Things to do at the Wellness Centre:

  •     Talk to trained students about your health questions
  •     Talk to a nurse about any health concern during Nurse on Campus hours
  •     Find out about health-related resources on and off campus
  •     Buy safer sex products, including condoms and lubricants, at cost (cash only)
  •     Join workshops, events, and other activities to develop skills and strategies for wellness
