• Cultural activities
• Scholarship and bursary information
• Educational and information sessions
• Networking opportunities
• Referrals to supports on and off campus
VISIT THE CENTRE
Visit our Centre at 1321 Edward Street to enjoy a hot drink, take advantage of academic advising, and meet other Indigenous students. We also host social gatherings, including potlucks, cultural events and information sessions.
The Indigenous Student Centre is proud to offer traditional smudging. The centre has appropriate ventilation and sage bundles available. We welcome students and elders to visit the centre to use our smudging facilities.
