Visit the Wellness Centre
The Wellness Centre is a quiet place to hang out, read a book, play a game, have a cup of tea, and talk to a peer leader about your health and wellness. We also provide health and wellness resources, Advil, tampons, Naloxone kits (and training), condoms, and more.
We are open Monday to Friday from September to April in Old Main 1479. Drop-in anytime. All students and staff welcome.
