Counselling and Student Development Centre

The Counselling and Student Development Centre offers support to students in their learning and personal development.

Because learning takes place both inside and outside of the classroom, we encourage students to take part in the following programs and services:

Multi Faith Resource Team is a multi-faith service providing pastoral care and worship services. This group of religious persons, representing major world religions, sponsors programs related to agriculture, feminism, justice and spirituality. An interfaith resource centre is open to students.

The Centre for Students With Disabilities assists students with disabilities by providing counselling and support, arranging appropriate classroom and exam accommodations and promoting greater awareness and understanding of disability issues in the university community.

Contact Help and Safety Line is an after-hours phone line available to all members of the University community. Trained volunteers offer support and referral services to callers. All calls are confidential and anonymous. The Contact Line is open from 6:00 p.m. to 12:00 midnight every day.

Counselling Services offers professional counselling to help students deal with personal or psychological problems in order to foster personal and academic growth. Both individual and group counselling therapy are provided.

Raithby House Drop-in volunteers provide personal support, information, a listening ear and referrals on an informal drop-in basis. Any member of the university community is welcome to use the Drop-In when they wish to talk to someone or wish information. Raithby House Drop-In is staffed by trained student volunteers. The House Drop-In is open Monday to Friday from 4:00 p.m. to 12:00 midnight. You will see The House flag flying when we are open.
