Tools for Success

University is a time of transition for many, and that's normal! You might find yourself in a new place, making new friends, studying in new ways and figuring out who you are and who you want to be. The tools below will help you in achieving your highest potential.

Tools and Services to Aid your Success

Below is a comprehensive list of tools and services available to Huron students because we want you to have the best university experience possible!

Academic Calendar

The Academic Calendar is your handbook to the procedures and regulations of the institution.  It provides students with graduation requirements, course descriptions, module offerings, policies on repeated courses and more.  You can find Huron information by selecting the Affiliated University Colleges tab on the left hand side of the Calendar.  The Academic Information tab also provides useful information that pertains to Huron students.

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.

Learning Skills Services

Learning Skills on main campus hosts workshops on topics such as successful time management and studying for multiple choice tests.  Huron students are welcome to drop in for appointments with a learning skills counsellor.  Students can even sign up for their monthly study tip e-mail outs.  Services are include in your tuition.

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.

The university offers counselling services.  Students can access counselling services through the Student Development Centre:  or through Student Health Services in UCC Rm. 11 (or call 519-661-3771).

Good2talk from the creators of Kids Help Phone has the same idea as Kids Help Phone but is specifically geared to post-secondary students.  Trained counsellors answer calls 24/7.  This is a toll-free number: 1-866-925-5454.

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.

Living Well @ Western is a new program that promotes student (staff and faculty) health and wellness.  They may advertise different wellness activities each week from yoga to meditation.

The Western Recreation Centre is a good place to work off stress.  Drop in or sign up for intramurals, clubs or a class.  Registration usually opens and closes very quickly upon start of the term.
