Welcome to Student Wellness Services

SWS will be open for summer hours of operation, 9:00 am – 4:30 pm, from May – August. Evening and walk-in service will resume in September.

Student Wellness Services supports the personal, academic, and social development of students at Queen's University by providing a range of programs and services. Our mission is to provide a welcoming, confidential, and integrated service that is responsive to the needs of students. Please note that due to high demand for services, there can be a wait time for an appointment. We offer a range of programs and services and encourage you to explore the options below. If your situation is urgent or you have an immediate need, please let the staff know.

If you have an Emergency, where your health or safety situation is life-threatening, please call 9-1-1 or go directly to the Emergency department at the Kingston Health Sciences Centre (entrance on King St. between George and Lower University).

Student Wellness Services wishes all students a healthy and restful holiday.
