The Health and Wellness Centre is OCAD University's on-campus clinic that provides medical and counselling services to all OCAD U students. The services are accessible and responsive to issues relating to gender, race, age, culture, ability, sexual orientation, income and faith. We are a team of health-care professionals whose goal it is to make your time at OCAD U a positive and fulfilling experience and help you maintain optimal physical and mental health while pursuing a post-secondary education.

Health services

Our family doctor is available Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. Please note that the last walk-in is available at 3 p.m and that walk-ins generally occur on a first come, first served basis.  

Counselling services

Walk-in counselling is available Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. To ensure you get the best out of your session, please arrive by 3:30 p.m. Walk-in counselling can be used to access crisis support, get connected to ongoing counselling and other Health & Wellness services, as well as to explore options for community resources. Walk-in sessions are typically 20 minutes in length and generally occur on a first come, first served basis.

For after-hours support, see our resources.


The OCAD U Health & Wellness Centre is open to OCAD students year round. Please note that you must be registered in a degree program and currently enrolled in classes in order to access services.


The current coverage period started on September 1, 2015 and continues to August 31, 2016. For more information about your coverage, your pay-direct card and contact information for the Member Services Centre please visit or visit Health and Dental Plan.
