What we offer

We offer individualized services, mostly to first-year students or students at uOttawa for the first time. We strive to go above and beyond to help you. No one is better suited than we are to support you in your studies and life at university.

Your academic, social and cultural well-being is our priority.

We’re here to support you from the first time you arrive on campus and enrol to the last day of exams, through everything that affects your university life.

We have access to key people and resources in every University service and department.

We know a lot about the services offered on campus and can also speak about our own student experience. Our advice is based on what we’ve learned on our own journey.
