From state-of-the-art recreation services, to accessibility services for students with acute or chronic health issues, in-person or virtual counselling appointments, and resources that help students de-stress, BCIT has student well-being front-of-mind. Make use of the many health and wellness supports that are available to you during your time at BCIT.
Our focus at Accessibility Services is to empower you to overcome the limits and barriers that you encounter during your studies as a result of a disability, whether visible, invisible, permanent, or temporary. Whether you need exam accommodation, a quiet place to recharge, or adaptive technology to help you learn due to a disability or ongoing medical condition, Accessibility Services is here for you.

Counselling & Student Development
It’s important to take care of your mental health. Free and confidential one-on-one counseling is available to all BCIT students, full-time and part-time. Seeking support to overcome personal and professional challenges will help you thrive in school and in life. Whatever you’re facing, our counsellors are here to help.
In addition to in-person appointments, BCIT’s Counselling and Student Development team will continue to offer telephone and video appointments to all students. Please call 604-432-8608 to book an appointment.
For mental health resources that you may find helpful during this challenging time, visit Mental Health at Home.
Early Assist is a confidential online platform that provides BCIT faculty, staff and students an opportunity to identify students who may be struggling personally or academically, and offer them appropriate support and services at an early stage.
Recreation Services has something for everyone! Learn how you can balance your study time with fun and engaging opportunities to stay active, and connect with your BCIT community through play.
Student Health Services
Student Health Services offers confidential medical services to all BCIT students, full-time and part-time. Walk-ins are not allowed and entry is by appointment only. We are still operating virtually unless an in-person visit is medically necessary. Medical masks are still required at all times in the clinics. Please call to book an appointment or book an appointment online with one of our physicians, or nurses.
