Advising and Support

Student Experience Advisors

Wondering what the difference is between an Advisor and the Counsellors in Counselling Services?

An Advisor is a staff member that provides information about the many supports and resources available to students. An Advisor can guide and assist you in navigating the university system, explaining and clarifying institutional policies, describing the overarching expectations of students, and facilitating connections with other campus or community supports, resources or services.

Students can also access Counselling Services in the University Centre on the 3rd floor.
