Out of Office Wellness Resources

SLC campuses will be open with limited services between December 20 and 23, and the College will be closed for the holidays from December 24 to January 2, 2022.

To help our students plan early, online appointments with our counsellors and advisors will resume on January 3 when we reopen. In the meantime, you will find resources on this page from Student Wellness & Accessibility to support your well-being when college operations are shut down.
