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.

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. Visit our website to find out how to register with us.
In response to COVID-19, Accessibility Services is currently working with students and faculty to ensure equitable access across the new online learning platforms. See their updates and FAQs.
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. 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.

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.
Early Assist remains fully operational during COVID-19. BCIT community members are encouraged to continue to seek referrals for student-related academic, behavioural, or health & well-being concerns by submitting a referral.
