AMS Peer Support Centre

The Peer Support Centre is a group of dedicated student volunteers who provide welcoming, confidential, and empathetic peer-based support to students at Queen’s University. Students are encouraged to come and speak with our volunteers who will listen and offer support for any and all issues. As well, we can suggest resources available on campus and in the Kingston community.

The Peer Support Centre is now open for the Summer! Our Hours are Monday and Thursday from 5:00 PM– 9:00 PM! Come talk with one of our trained volunteers! We are Here for You!
