Appointments

Same-day appointments are available without an appointment with a doctor, nurse or counsellor. 

All drop-ins begin being processed at 9 a.m. Please come in person to the Wellness Hub.

Since drop-ins fill up quickly, it's best to book an appointment if it isn't urgent.


To Book a Future Appointment

Please call 514-398-6017 (Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.) or come in person between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. to make an appointment with any Hub professional.

If you're meeting a counsellor, you will be able to indicate if you’d like them to be:

  • French-speaking
  • Indigenous
  • A particular gender
  • Or to specialize in LGBTQ+ experiences 

Preferences may impact your wait times.

To Cancel an Appointment

Please call 514-398-6017 (Monday to Friday from 10am to 3pm) to cancel an appointment at least 24 hours in advance. You may also cancel an appointment by emailing hub.clinic [at] mcgill.ca, but you must call or come in person to re-book.

See the PDF icon fees table for late cancellation and no-show fees. Note that if your appointment is on Monday, you must cancel on Friday to avoid paying the fee.

Failing to cancel an appointment on time also means that your spot can't be given to another student.
