Changes to Student Success Centre Services

Most Student Success staff will be moving to working remotely as of Monday March 23, 2020. Working remotely means staff can be contacted via email or telephone to have questions answered or to set up a remote meeting via telephone, Microsoft Teams or another mutually agreed upon means of meeting remotely. 

Health Services will remain open Monday–Friday, 8:30am–4pm for currently enrolled Dalhousie University students. It is preferable that you email for an appointment prior to coming to the department for care. MD visits will be scheduled by RN’s.

Please note: Days of week / times of day are subject to change but will be communicated on our voicemails/email responses
