Student Health and Counselling Centre
An exciting addition to the expanded Place Riel Student Centre was the Student Health and Counselling Centre, formerly housed in the Qu’Appelle Hall Addition and Saskatchewan Hall. The centre moved into the third and fourth floors of the new building, where they have nearly three times the area of the old facility. With additional space and upgrades, the University of Saskatchewan’s student health centre is now one of the best in Canada.
The development of the space for Student Health and Counselling:
- Increased efficiency of service delivery and patient flow by having appropriate, purpose-built space which will increase the number of health care professionals that can be scheduled as well as the number of patents able to be seen.
- Alleviated the serious bio-safety concerns and facilitate compliance with required inflection control processes.
- Facilitated further integration of Student Health and Student Counselling services so that overall services provided to students are enhanced.
- Located Student Health and Counselling Centre in the core of the campus, along with other student services which will facilitate access to services.
- Enhanced and enriched the student experience by providing services in an appropriate, purpose-built facility.
- Resulted in the provision of 46 additional residence beds as a result of Student Health and Student Counselling releasing currently occupied space in Saskatchewan Hall and Qu’Appelle Hall Addition.
The new centre was operational at the end of July 2011.
