Appointments should be made in advance, especially during peak times. Peak times are typically a few weeks prior and leading up to midterms and final exams. However, the Student Learning Centre offers drop-in study sessions through our study halls and writing room.

Please provide 24 hours’ notice to cancel an appointment. Appointments cancelled with less than 24 hours’ notice:

  • Will be counted as a no-show.
  • After three no-shows, a student may be barred from accessing the service for the remainder of the semester.
  • Will result in one session taken off the semester total (12 appointments per calendar each semester).
