An Aboriginal Student Advisor is available to discuss any questions or concerns students may have, from academic and program questions to funding information or concerns to housing opportunities. 

Please contact us to make an appointment with the Advisor.

Computer Lab

Seven computers are available for students to use in the Aboriginal Student Services Centre for internet and printing. This space also offers a study area and bulletin board postings for current events, community information, employment and volunteer opportunities, and scholarships and bursaries. 

Printing, Photocopying, Faxing and Telephone Services

Printing and photocopying services are available in our Centre. The first thirty copies are free to students; any subsequent pages are $0.10 each. Students can also use our fax machine for sending and receiving documents (no charge).
We offer free local calling on our courtesy phone, as well as free long-distance calling to bands and funding agencies.

Sewell Reference Room

The Sewell Reference Room, created in honour of Catherine Sewell and with the help of generous donations, offers hundreds of book titles highlighting Aboriginal themes and stories. Students and staff may sign-out our books on a 3 week loan. More information on sign-out procedures is available at ASSC.

For more information on sign-out procedures or if you are interested in donating books to our collection, please contact us.

Ceremonial Room

In an effort to respect indigenous traditions and meet the needs of all staff and students at the University, a Smudge and Meditation room is available for students to access anytime during office hours.

Medicines (sage, sweetgrass, tobacco) are on-hand for students to use. The room has a specialized fan/air system.
