HSS EXEC OFFICE
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, according to the schedule below!
Make sure to keep track of all of UOttawa's important dates!
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!
THINGS TO KNOW
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 Student Federation of the University of Ottawa (SFUO), and the mandate provided to this association by the University of Ottawa. In order to be concise, masculine includes the feminine.
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. For more information, follow this link:
Interested in research? The Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) offers an opportunity to undergraduate students to work with a professor and gain research experience.
Do you get tired of the same old scenery everyday? Have an itch to explore the world? It's important to be a student. So why not look into studying abroad for a semester or two? There's a way!
If you're interested in sports, UOttawa offers competitive and recreational sports such as basketball, dodgeball, flag football, ultimate, hockey, soccer and volleyball.
Textbooks are expensive and it's not a bad idea to find another (cheaper) way to acquire your textbooks. Make sure to keep up with the UOttawa Textbook Exchange group!
Lost & Found
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!)
