The Student Development Centre is home to a variety of services specially designed to meet the needs of undergraduate and graduate students on campus. Our staff members are highly trained and experienced professionals who know what campus life is all about. A dedicated group of student volunteers work with us to provide our programs. Most of our services are free for Western students and recent graduates. Visiting scholars, post-doctoral researchers and families of faculty members can access some of our services also. Explore the Website, drop into the Centre, or give us a call to find out how we can help you.
