Student Counselling & Development (SCD) provides a comprehensive package of psychological and academic support services to members of the York Community. Their clients are students registered at the University, but consultations with faculty and staff also occur as necessary. Included among the services provided are personal counselling (individual, group, and couples counselling as appropriate), crisis response and support. The Accessibility, Well-being and Counselling (AWC) Centre at Glendon also offers support services for Glendon students.
Student Accessibility Services provides specialized support to students with learning, mental health, physical, sensory or medical disabilities, and various consultative and outreach activities to the York University community.
The Centre for Human Rights, Equity and Inclusion (REI) promotes and builds a respectful, equitable, diverse and inclusive university community. It strives to be a leader in providing accessible, impartial, non-adversarial, and confidential programs and services that uphold human rights, facilitate equitable access to opportunities, and champion diversity and inclusion.
The Office of Student Community Relations (OSCR) supports students impacted by critical incidents, facing personal crises or multiple complex issues. The Office of Student Community Relations supports students, parent/guardians and the community in its role as the University liaison in the management of critical incident cases. Other supports include contacting students and/or their family and assisting them by arranging appropriate referrals and support, both internal and external to York. OSCR works directly with the Office of the President, Faculties, Security Services, the Registrar and any other University unit that may be in involved. OSCR provides support for incidents such as, but not limited to, critical illness or injury of a student, student death, attempted suicide and sexual assault. OSCR advocates for students to secure academic accommodations, financial assistance, stop-outs/leaves and emergency housing. OSCR is also committed to fostering student success by upholding the behavioural expectations outlined in the Code of Student Rights & Responsibilities (CSRR). OSCR works with students to resolve complaints regarding inappropriate student behaviour either informally or through formal disciplinary processes.

The York Federation of Students offers one of the most comprehensive student health and dental plans in all of Canada. Most full-time undergraduate students are automatically enrolled in the plan, however students should always check their Student Account Statement to confirm enrollment before seeking undergoing treatments or purchasing services and medications. If you have comparable insurance, you can coordinate your benefits or opt-out for a refund.
