HSSA and the University of Ottawa provide a variety of different resources for students to use when needing to seek help or wishing to enrich their student experience!

Also see Academic Tips for more.  



Need a little help with school? The Faculty of Health Sciences, in partnership with the Student Academic Success Services (SASS) offers a mentoring program to all of the HSS students. Check it out!

Our Constitution

The constitution applies to the affairs of the University of Ottawa Health Sciences Student Association (HSSA).

This document establishes the rules of the HSSA, subject to the articles of the constitution of the University of Ottawa Student Union (UOSU), and the mandate provided to this association by the University of Ottawa. In order to be concise, masculine includes the feminine.

Need any mental health support at any time during the year? Check out the resource linked above.

Lost something of yours? It's possible that someone picked it up and dropped it of at the University Center (UCU). Make sure to bring an ID card when you pass by!

This is a free volunteer-based service created by the Student Federation of the University of Ottawa (SFUO) that offers you a safe environment. Volunteers can walk you home or even take the bus with you. (Within a certain distance of course!) 

This semester, the HSS office will be closed, however feel free to send us an email or attend office hours if you have any questions! Office hours will take place on the discord page.

If you're in first year, this is an opportunity for you! HSS Buddies is a program that helps pair first year health science students with a volunteered older peer as a mentor. 

Make sure to keep track of all of UOttawa's important dates!
