DROP-IN COUNSELLING (phone, virtual or in-person as guidelines allow)

The drop-in service is available to provide support, information and referrals to students dealing with a variety of same-day, emerging or crisis situations.

Our experienced and empathetic team is able to support you in these conversations. You can learn more about our services at Counselling: What to Expect.

Waiting Lists

We try to see students as soon as possible; however, as the semester progresses wait times for appointments increase. If students feel they cannot wait until the next available appointment, they should take advantage of our Urgent Drop-in appointments. Also, there are many services you may access off campus if you require more specific follow-up.
