Health, Wellness and Accessibility

We understand that being successful at college is not just about being good at academics. You may experience any number of challenges that may affect your success at Niagara College; that is where we come in.

We are your single location for support with physical and mental health, personal support and assistance with disability related needs.  

There are three categories of services within the Health, Wellness and Accessibility Services (HWAS), each with their own dedicated team members. Health Services feature support from our Nurses and Doctors, Wellness Services pertain to support from our Counsellors, and Accessibility Services has a team of Accessibility Consultants, Learning Strategist and Assistive Technologist; all here to help support you during your NC journey.
