Student Counselling

We know university can be an exciting, yet stressful time for students. Homesickness, feeling anxious, and relationship troubles are a few examples that can lead us to feel down and discouraged. Student Counselling is here for you so you can continue to enjoy your activities, live well, and have a great Mount Royal University experience.

In our PodCAST, Counsellor Mirjam Knapik explains what Student Counselling is for, what counsellors do, and what services we offer.
