Supporting You Throughout the Summer Term

Carleton University wants you to know that we are here to support you. Both on-campus and in the community there are many services and resources available during this time to support you.

Our student support services have transitioned to providing alternative methods of service delivery to help you achieve your goals, please visit the Student Service Information page. Additionally, students who are looking for more information about federal, provincial and municipal support resources are encouraged to visit the Resources Directory.


Whether you call Ottawa home, or you’re currently living across Canada or around the world, the Mental Health and Well-Being website has been updated to provide you with a directory of support services and resources to help you manage your mental health and get the help you need.

Carleton University’s Health and Counselling Services remains open virtually and Campus Safety Services remains operational through the current COVID-19 pandemic. In case of an emergency, please call 4444 from any on-campus phone. If it is not an emergency, please call 613-520-3612. For students registered with the Paul Menton Centre (PMC), the PMC is hosting weekly virtual support meetings where students can meet in a small group to discuss various topics of support.


To help you reach your academic goals, the Centre for Student Academic Support (CSAS) has transitioned to providing services remotely during their regular business hours. Teaching and Learning Services and Scheduling and Exam Services have also teamed up to provide you with an Exam FAQ designed to answer any questions you may have about online examinations for the winter term.


Carleton University is continuing to add resources to the Carleton Student Emergency Fund 2020 through our FutureFunder website. The University is matching all gifts one-to-one.

If you are in need of emergency assistance and are not eligible to benefit from other government programs, please complete the Student Emergency Fund In-Take Form available to graduate and undergraduate students to receive funding for essential expenses that may have arisen as a result of COVID-19.

Campus Life

For students looking to engage with their peers, have some fun and win great prizes the Student Experience Office (SEO) has teamed up with a variety of on-campus partners including the International Student Services Office (ISSO), Carleton Athletics and the Carleton University Students’ Association (CUSA) to bring great online social events like paint nights, fitness classes and more right into your home.

If you are feeling anxious, stressed or overwhelmed there is always someone you can talk to.
