SAMRU is here for you over the summer

As a member, you continue to have access to SAMRU resources, programs, and spaces over the summer!


If you’re appealing a final grade, preparing to meet with your professor, or have another academic (or non-academic) situation that you aren’t sure how to navigate, SAMRU’s Student Advocacy Resource Centre (SARC) provides you with confidential support, guidance, and options. 

Book an appointment with SARC.

Student Health & Dental Benefits

If you’re enrolled in SAMRU’s Student Health and Dental Benefit plan, you have coverage over the spring and summer, until August 31, 2023. If you’re returning in the fall, your coverage will be renewed automatically in the next academic year. If you aren’t returning, be sure to use your coverage before it expires! Planning to travel? You can also use your plan anywhere in Canada!
