To book an appointment, call the Waterloo Student Wellness Centre at 519.884.0710 x3146 

If you are experiencing illness (new cough or cold), please call the Student Wellness Centre first to receive advice on treatment options and an appointment.

There are a limited number of walk-in appointments available each day, on a first come, first served basis for unpredictable concerns. Access to same-day visits is not guaranteed, and availability and wait times may vary depending on demand. 

In order to book appointments appropriately, the reception team will require some basic information about your presenting concern.

To book an appointment, call the Brantford Wellness Centre at 519.756.8228 x5803

Physicians are available by appointment or walk-in. Wellness Centre medical staff includes a psychiatrist. A referral is required from a doctor to see the psychiatrist.

Same-day appointments are limited and can be booked, by phone or by drop-in, from 8:30 a.m. during weekdays until they are full.

Cancellation and Missed Appointment Policy

It is your responsibility to ensure that you attend your appointments. Cancellations will be accepted without penalty up to 24 hours before your appointment. Individuals who give less than 24 hours’ notice of a cancellation or who miss an appointment will be invoiced for the full amount, as per the missed appointment fees outlined below. Appointment reminders are emailed to your MyLaurier email address 48 hours in advance of your appointment as a courtesy; however, you are responsible for your appointment from the time of booking.

We accept payments in cash or debit.
