Due to social distancing measures, our centre in the SUB is currently closed, and the Wellness Space is not running.

Welcome to the UVSS Peer Support Centre!

A safer space created to be an inclusive and comfortable space for students from all walks of life.

Whether you are struggling with or have questions regarding mental health, are concerned for a friend, or need help accessing resources on or off campus, you can seek a first-point-of-contact at the Peer Support Centre. 

Our trained student volunteers are here to listen, offering non-judgmental, empathetic and confidential support while helping fellow students navigate next-step resources and student life at UVic.

*Drop-in sessions are now closed for the summer. We’ll see you in September! 

If you have any questions or want to get in touch, email us at
