THINGS TO KNOW

Our Constitution

Lost & Found

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.

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! 

Studying Abroad

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! 

Intramurals

If you're interested in sports, UOttawa offers competitive and recreational sports such as basketball, dodgeball, flag football, ultimate, hockey, soccer and volleyball. 

Foot Patrol

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!) 

Volunteer Opportunities: Mental Health & Wellness
