Student Wellness

Supporting your wellness journey

What does your holistic wellness look like?

We want you to feel empowered to take control of your wellness journey. This means having spaces to discover and celebrate wellness on campus. 

Student Wellness will offer a variety of resources to help you find, access, and honour your wellness on our website and the Wellness Centre. Look out for updated resources that reflect the current and ongoing research on health and wellness for post-secondary students. We encourage you to stay close and check back regularly!

If you have feedback to share about the Student Wellness website or a new resource topic to suggest, please use the website feedback form.

Mental & emotional wellness

Being a university student can be tough on your mental health. Learn knowledge and skills for dealing with the ups, downs, and pressures of academic life.




When we are overwhelmed with student life, it can be difficult to stay on top of our physical health. Here are some useful tips for finding movement, eating well, and using alcohol and other substances in a safe way.



Sex & relational wellness

Part of being a student is understanding the values and boundaries around your body. Check out some information on making informed choices around relationships, intimacy, and sex.  




When we are feeling isolated or alone, we may need to lean on practices and ceremonies that help to fill our spirits. Find ways to connect through environment, community, nature, religion, or spirituality.

"One unique aspect of the Wellness Centre is that you can talk one-on-one with a peer to receive support and resources to help with your well-being. This is especially helpful if you are feeling stressed, overwhelmed, or just want someone to talk to."

- Arshdeep W, BSc student (3rd year)
