Today is #BellLetsTalk Day – a day encouraging us all to join the conversation and help end the stigma surrounding mental health illness. Here at U of G, we recognize that even the most well-rounded students need support, whether that be academically, physically, mentally, or emotionally.

In support of #BellLetsTalk, we’re sharing the supports offered to students on campus as well as additional resources available to anyone who needs support.


Student Support Network

The Student Support Network is a community offering non-judgmental drop-in peer support. Our student volunteers are trained to deliver this service. You can drop-in during their hours, or chat with them after-hours via their phone support or crisis line (crisis services: 1-844-437-3247 or Good2Talk: 1-866-925-5454).

Student Wellness

Our student wellness services provide a holistic approach to well-being and academic success. Whether you are a varsity athlete or a student in need of a relaxing massage, these services are available for all Gryphons!

Sexual Assault Support and Information

This service offers resources and support for yourself, or a friend, who might be in need.

Student Life

Students are at the heart of what Student Life does. Their programs, services and spaces are available to everybody. Check out their list of programs to see all that Student Life offers students.

Aboriginal Resource Centre

The Aboriginal Resource Centre provides a home away from home for all First Nations, Metis and Inuit students. Think of it as an inclusive community for people from a variety of Indigenous cultures meant to help you connect with each other through Student Advising, an Aboriginal Student Association, student support and STARTAboriginal (meant for first year students).


OUTline offers services for the LGBTQ2IA+ community. They are your go-to if you have questions related to sexual orientation and gender identity, or are seeking support.

Diversity & Human Rights

U of G is a diverse and inclusive community. The Office of Diversity and Human Rights helps to promote a study, work and living environment free of harassment and discrimination.
