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.
Feeling overwhelmed with all the responsibilities or changes in your life? Concerned for a friend and don’t know how to help them? Looking for a resource or don’t know what’s out there? Trying to make a decision and need a sounding board? Don’t know where to begin and your work is piling up? Struggling with motivation and procrastination? Anxious? Homesick? Need to talk?
For all of this and much more, we’re here for you.
We are located in room 34 of the JDUC (facing the Publishing and Copy Centre, turn right and walk to the very end of the hallway), and we are open from 4:00 PM – 8:00 PM during the Summer term (from June 3rd onward) . During those times, you can drop-in to the Centre or you can call the Centre (613-533-6000 ext. 75111).
We will be CLOSED until Monday June 3rd!
