Student Health Services

Providing on-campus health services is an important part of Algoma University’s commitment to students’ well being as well as their academic success.Students have access to a physician, counsellor, and dental hygienist.

All students must bring their health card and/or insurance information to each appointment. Students must also bring all of their medications to each appointment – even renewals – to ensure that the physician knows exactly what you are taking and how often.

To obtain a student counselling referral, please contact the Student Services Advisor in SH 206 or email healthservices@algomau.ca.

The Student Health Services department is located in SH 216, directly across from the Student Foodbank.
