Student Services Update

Dear Students,

As Winter 2021 semester programs and courses are primarily being delivered remotely/online, we are committed to continuing to provide many online services to support your academic and personal success. We will work hard to meet your needs by phone, online, and using tools such as Blackboard or Microsoft Teams to maintain a virtual, personal connection.

Our aim, as always, is to support your health and well-being. We will adjust our plans and offerings in response to changing conditions and your feedback.

We understand this is a challenging time. Counselling appointments are available virtually by telephone or video. You can book an appointment by contacting counselling@humber.ca or by phone at 416-675-5090 (North) or 416-675-6622 ext. 3331 (Lakeshore).

For after-hours counselling support, you can access the Good2Talk Helpline at 1-866-925-5454, or use Therapy Assist Online, which provides online and mobile tools.

View the categories below to discover more about the services and supports available to you. This content is subject to change and will be updated regularly.

The Campus Bookstores for the Winter Term will be offering an online shopping experience as well as in-store shopping. 

Due to overwhelming demand, we are experiencing a fulfillment backlog, and we are doing our best to accommodate each one of our customers. The current processing time for order fulfillment is within 48-72 hours. If an item is not available in our store, that order will be sent to another Campus Store within our chain for fulfillment. Delivery time for these will be 4-6 days.

In order to provide contactless service, online order pick-up will be handled at the window outside the store (Window in the Wall) at the North Campus.

Your patience is appreciated during these unprecedented times. At both the campus stores, we're focused on limiting occupancy and giving everybody lots of room practicing physical/social distancing, washing our hands, wearing masks and gloves as well as regularly sanitizing common areas of each store. All customers must wear a mask or face covering while in the store. Sanitizer will be provided at the entrance.

Due to overwhelming demand, we are experiencing a fulfillment backlog, and we are doing our best to accommodate each one of our customers.
