About the Student Wellness Centres

Laurier's Student Wellness Centres are the home of all physical, emotional and mental health services for students on our Waterloo and Brantford campuses. We are a multidisciplinary team offering comprehensive, collaborative service to help you get the best support in the most seamless and coordinated manner possible.  We welcome and support diverse communities.

Make sure you have your health card information ready when you call.  We need to confirm this information when we book you an appointment!

Visits to the Student Wellness Centre for medical appointments are generally covered by provincial health insurance (OHIP) or UHIP. The cost of counselling sessions is covered by your student services fees: you will not be charged for attending a counselling appointment. Certain types of appointments, certain forms requested by third parties, and certain types of documentation are subject to additional fees. Visit our Appointments and Fees page for information about fees for uninsured services.
