Redeemer University College recognizes that the creation of a positive learning experience includes attention to students’ health and wellbeing. Therefore, we take strides to both accommodate and provide for student health needs. The Student Life department and the Residence Life staff – the typical first contacts for student concerns – are trained in both First Aid and Mental Health First Aid and are knowledgeable about Redeemer’s available services as well as external community services.

Student Health 101 E-magazine

Helpful information about how to make the best of your university experience can be found in articles of numerous topics within the monthly E-magazine that students are subscribed to. Student Health 101 tailors their content specifically to Redeemer students to stay relevant to our community. From cooking ideas to studying tips to suggestions for stress management, Student Health 101 contributes to all aspects of health and wellbeing.

Health Insurance

All students are required to have medical insurance. Students not covered under a Canadian Provincial Health plan must provide evidence of medical insurance. All US/International Students are automatically enrolled in a health insurance plan. US/International students who have proof of health insurance that covers them while studying in Canada may opt out. Please consult with the Student Life Department for more information.
