Study skills workshops and Mentors

Mentors

We are upper-year students living in residence, who offer academic support to others. We are available every evening to offer mentoring for academic issues. Throughout the year we offer study skills workshops and organize large events to connect you with academic resources on campus. 

Each mentor has a specific schedule for individual sessions. Please contact the mentor living in your building to arrange a meeting.

What is a study skills workshop?

The Residence Mentor Program is offered as a FREE service to all students living in residence at the University of Ottawa. The goal of the program is to provide study skills workshops in French and in English where students can meet once a week to get tools on how to study efficiently from experienced upper year students.
