Tools and Services to Aid your Success

Services for Students with Disabilities

Huron students who require academic accommodations on the basis of a disability need to register with the Services for Students with Disabilities office.  If, during your time at Huron you find yourself temporarily unable to write/ walk due to an injury, this office might be able to assist with accommodations (e.g., note-taking, etc.).  Documentation is required for accommodation.

Dealing with Stress

University can be a stressful time for students.   Balancing academics and finding time for leisure activities can manage stress and create a more enjoyable university experience.  Take this opportunity to develop some effective stress coping strategies, whether it is working out at the Recreation Centre, walking on one of London’s many nature trails or joining a student club.

Another new tool designed for post-secondary students is the Healthy Mind app.  It is another tool to help cope with stress on and off campus.
