Do you need help planning your courses? Do you want to know if you are ready to graduate? Contact our student advisers Kathy Harrison or Vicki Ziegler for assistance.
CYC student liaison
Are you having a problem in a course that you can’t seem to resolve by talking with the instructor? Are you at the end of your rope with a personal problem you’ve tried solving? The SCYC student liaison is available to help you find and work through to a solution. To make an appointment, call Greg Saunders at 250-721-7990 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
UVic Counselling Services
Do you need additional support to succeed at university? At UVic Counselling Services, counselors provide a confidential atmosphere in which students can explore any topic or situation and discuss any concerns they may have. They'll help you work through your problems, to develop self-awareness, and to overcome problems by using new strategies. Visit the Counselling Services website for more information.

Students with disabilities
The Resource Centre for Students with a Disability helps students with a disability maximize their participation in university life. If you have a disability, it's best to contact the centre before the beginning of term to discuss ways in which you may best be aided.
There’s a wheelchair-access washroom in the HSD computer lab. Ground floor access to the lab is via the Ring Road entrance to the HSD building, on the main floor.
