The new school year is starting and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome both new students and returning students into our Humber community. As we prepare for school physically with buying school supplies, textbooks etc, it’s also important to get our heads in the game mentally!

All Humber College students and Guelph-Humber students have access to free health and counselling services available to them online with Student Wellness & Accessibility Centre (SWAC for short). Email counselling@humber.ca to set up an appointment with a Humber doctor or nurse. Virtual Sessions are held through either Zoom calls or telephone calls. More information about the Student Wellness & Accessibility Centre can be found here

Student Wellness and Accessibility Hours:

Monday - Friday: 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM
