Healthcare on Campus

Health and Counselling Services is your health and wellness centre on campus.  Here you will find a healthcare facility that provides medical, counselling, and health promotion programs to students and staff.

The team of medical professionals including family physicians and registered nurses provides outpatient medical services and serve as primary care providers at Health and Counselling Services (HCS).  Appointments can be made for general health concerns, and walk-in services are available for those in need of more immediate medical assistance. HCS provides specialized services to meet the needs of the Carleton University student, faculty, and staff population in addition to basic medical and walk-in services.

The main facility is located in the Carleton Technology and Training Centre where you can also find a pharmacy to fill your prescriptions.  For additional information, please visit the Health and Counselling Services website by clicking here or visit Carleton’s new Mental Health and Well-being website by clicking here.

Counselling in Residence
