Mentors are here to help

Did you know that there are over 200 mentors on campus?

Mentors are students who are trained to help other students. They understand the challenges of university life as an undergraduate or graduate student and can answer your questions about uOttawa services, study methods, writing techniques, and more!

Chat with a mentor (blue tab at bottom right of the page) to help you navigate this webpage, to discuss anything related to your studies, or to schedule a one-on-one appointment.
