Student services

Here to help you succeed!

Based in the Brown Student Services Building on the Downtown Campus, Student Services offers a wide variety of mostly free resources to help you succeed at McGill, ranging from career planning to mental health, from tutoring to financial aid & scholarship information. The Macdonald Student Services are located in the Centennial Centre.

A list of student services can be found in your First Contact magazine, which is distributed at Discover McGill. Alternatively, visit McGill's Student Services website or browse our Students page for a complete directory of services, resources, information sources and other useful websites.

Having academic difficulties?

During your university career, you may experience personal, medical or other difficulties that affect your academic performance. In some cases, students may be placed on probationary standing if their grades are too weak. Poor academic performance can be the result of time management problems, health issues, reading difficulties, the death of a loved one, financial worries, and many other situations. Being independent means knowing when you need help — don't hesitate to seek advice from the many professionals on campus whose job it is to help you.

If you're feeling anxious or overwhelmed by your courses, McGill features a broad network of counsellors, tutors, workshops and other resources that may help. Find out more at our Students page, or consult the Achievement Builders Winter 2013 pamphlet to identify the best resources to help you get you back on track.

If you're still not sure where to go, come to the First-Year Office anytime during your academic career, and we'll make sure you get the support you need.
