Health and Counselling Centre

Contact Numbers in case of an emergency

The Health and Counselling Centre provides Primary Health Care to StFX students, including medical, sexual and mental health services, with a collaborative care team that includes physicians, nurses and mental health professionals.  Our services are self-referral only and we’re very happy to partner with the StFX Students’ Union in providing an online booking and reminder system which has resulted in even easier access to our services!  

  • When you book online, you will see all available appointments with the Intake Nurse for the next 7 days.  We also reserve several appointments every day for same-day access.  Each weekday morning at 8:30 am new appointments open up, including the same-day access appointments for that day.  If you try to book online and it looks like nothing is available, just check back at 8:30 am the next day and the newly opened appointments will be showing.
  • When you receive an email reminder for a booked appointment, please check carefully for the time zone indicated in your reminder.  The correct time for your appointment is Nova Scotia time (Atlantic Standard Time); not the time zone of your home province, as may be indicated in your reminder.
  • PLEASE NOTE: If you wish to cancel a scheduled appointment, we require that you notify us 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment time, or a late fee of $25.00 will be charged to your student account. You can cancel online through Health Myself, by emailing, or by calling 902-867-2263. This allows us to offer that space to another student who needs it; please help us in not wasting any of our valuable health care resources!
  • Contact information:
    • 305 Bloomfield Centre; 902-867-2263
    • Hours of operation: Mondays and Thursdays 8:30 am- 8:00 pm; Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays 8:30 am- 4:30 pm.  Closed from 12:00- 1:00 pm daily for lunch.


Please note that the services you receive at the Health and Counselling Centre are confidential. We do not release information to your parents, your professors or anyone else without your permission or unless legally required to do so.
