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 online from Mondays – Thursdays, 11 am – 3 pm.

We encourage students seeking social engagement to join us for our free, bi-weekly events (Puppy Cuddles, Community Socials, Pop-Ups etc.) or to check out our special Friday programming in collaboration with the Office of Student Life: The Wellness Space!
