2013 NCHA Student Health and Wellness Survey

Queen's is one of 32 Canadian post–secondary institutions that took part in a North American student health and wellness survey in early 2013.

Data from the National College Health Assessment (NCHA) gives the University a comprehensive and accurate picture of student health and wellness and is being analysed to help inform changes and enhancements to support services and programs.

More than 1,200 Queen’s students participated; the results can be broken down to consider different segments of the student population, including first-years, undergraduates, graduate and professional students and international students.  

Queen's will also be able to compare its findings to the Canadian student population, as well as Ontario university students as well.

This slide deck (PDF, 8.8MB) provides an overview of the Queen's results. There is information about physical activity, eating habits, sleep, stress, sexual health, mental health and relationships.
