Across the university, there are supports available to you which have been created with your academic, personal and professional success in mind.

Need academic support? 

Memorial University offers a broad range of academic supports, ranging from workshops and interactive drop-in clinics, to a Writing Centre, an Academic Advising Centre, six library locations and various collaborative and individual work and study spaces.

Need someone to talk to?

Counselling Centre

Through individualized personal counselling, outpatient psychiatric services and a wide range of group counselling, professional staff and faculty at the Student Wellness and Counselling Centre help students to develop their own unique resources.

The Centre also helps students develop their study strategies through academic support programming. The Centre offers support for study problems in which students learn to apply strategies for managing university level academic work more effectively.


Memorial’s Chaplaincy aims to provide the university community with spiritual support, guidance, counselling and resources. They also offer a listening ear for those who simply need to talk about their personal experiences.

They provide support for memorial services on campus, mentor students in faith-focused student groups and associations and now have a more formal role in the new Student Support unit in Student Life.
