Welcome to Student Wellness Services

Student Wellness Services supports the personal, academic, and social development of students at Queen's University by providing a range of programs and services. Our mission is to provide a welcoming, confidential, and integrated service that is responsive to the needs of students.

December Update: Student Wellness Services remains open through December 21st. As the term winds down on what has been a very busy fall, we wanted to draw your attention to a few items:

  • The 15 Days of Exams Health Challenge is running through Health Promotion. Sign up here to engage in activities to stay healthy during the exam period.
  • We do have some same day availability for students who are in distress or exam-related stress and anxiety over the next two weeks. To access a same day appointment, please come to LaSalle - appointments are offered on a first come, first serve basis. 
  • Booked appointments are mostly full for the rest of the term, however we experience an increased number of cancellations during the exam period and we will have a daily cancellation list. If you would like to be added to the list, please let the receptionist know.
  • Our last evening walk-in clinic will be December 13th before starting up again in January. Day time walk-in clinics will continue until December 14th. During the week of December 17th - 21st, walk-in clinics will be open Monday and Wednesday mornings, and Thursday afternoon. 
  • We appreciate your patience with the business of the services. Our staff are very dedicated to supporting both physical and mental health, and continue to work hard to meet your needs.

 If you have an urgent need (your health or safety is at risk), please come to LaSalle and let us know you have an urgent situation, as we have additional supports for immediate needs that are within our scope. We may refer you to a community partner if they are better suited to your need.  If you have an Emergency, where your health or safety situation is life-threatening, please call 9-1-1 or go directly to the Emergency department at the Kingston Health Sciences Centre (entrance on King St. between George and Lower University).

Student Wellness Services wishes all students a healthy and restful holiday.
