Health Services Provided

Health Services welcomes and supports all diverse communities.

 WLU Health Services is available to any part-time or full-time student at WLU. We can provide the same service as your family physician while you are at Laurier. Physician and Nursing services are generally covered by your provincial health card or UHIP (for international and exchange students).  Certain services such as travel advice, third party requests (such as placement physicals or certificate of health for employment) and wart treatments are not covered by OHIP and you are responsible for payment.  Staff and faculty of WLU may access Health Services for WSIB issues but cannot receive primary health care due to space and staffing constraints.

Massage Therapy and Chiropractic Care

There are two massage therapists and a chiropracter in Health Services.  Appointments can be booked by calling 519-884-0710 ext 3146.  These services are not covered by OHIP but some coverage is available through your extended health provider.


It is recommeded that you book an appointment to see a physician. You can book an appointment by calling 519-884-0710 ext 3146 or you can speak with the receptionist in Health Services. During the fall and winter terms there are a limited amount of walk-in slots available for urgent or unpredictable concerns such as a urinary tract infection or acute illness. There are no walk in's during the summer. We do reserve several slots each day for same day appointments in the summer. Please call for an appointment. These openings are filled on a first come first served basis and you will be assessed by a nurse first.  There is no guarantee you will be seen and these slots are generally filled by early afternoon so it is advisable to present to Health Services as early in the day as possible.  These same day appointments are not for predictable issues such as physicals or medication renewals.  You need to book an appointment for these issues.

Nursing Assessments

You can always ask to see the nurse for an assessment to determine if a doctor’s visit is necessary.
