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.
Our family doctor is available Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Urgent same-day appointments are available on these days from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. Walk-in services are available. Please note that booked appointments have priority, therefore you may experience a longer wait as a walk-in. Please call us at 416-977-6000, Ext. 260, to book an appointment. The nurse is also available for select services Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
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 page.
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.
