Bishop’s Health Clinic
The Health Clinic is located in the John H. Price Sports & Recreation Centre (on the top floor – enter by the old entrance – offices are across from the pool windows).
The clinic offers confidential services to Bishop’s and Champlain students regarding the full range of health concerns, including testing for sexually transmitted infections (STIs), contraception, pregnancy tests, PAP tests, eating disorders, substance abuse, referrals to specialists, and much more. Services are free with a valid Quebec or out-of-province health card; otherwise, various fees apply. Free condoms are available in the waiting area while supplies last.
For an appointment, opening hours, or information, please see the Health Services website.
Bishop’s Counselling Office
Professional Counsellors are available to help students deal with personal concerns related to adapting to University life, family problems, relationships, difficulties with drugs & alcohol, and other matters, all of which are handled in complete confidentiality. Services are also provided to students wishing to enhance their study skills as well as those wishing to focus on career planning. Workshops on topics of interest to students are scheduled throughout the academic year.

Residence Life Coordinators
As Residence Life Coordinators (RLC), we help students who live in residence adjust to on-campus living. We are a great resource for any students who may be struggling to adjust to this new lifestyle or if they need someone to talk to. During the school year there is always one RLC on call who can be contacted by security in case of any emergency. From Monday to Friday our office hours are 9-5 and can be contacted by either our phone extension or by our email.
Although the Ombudsperson does not deal directly with sexual assault, which is a legal matter, he can help you in negotiating with professors on academic issues arising for victims of sexual assault.
For an appointment, opening hours, or information, please see the University Ombuds Office website.
