Need someone to talk to? You’re not alone! We’re all ears! Grad school can be tough, isolating, and stressful. To help better support WesternU grads, the Graduate Peer Support (GPS) Committee is bringing back its drop-ins to better connect with grad students in need of support, an ear, and resources. 

Call or text our toll-free number to talk to a trained graduate student about whatever problems you’re currently experiencing. The GPS team offers anonymity and support over the phone or via text message. \

Want to talk?

  • Text or call : (807)-790-4816 on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 2-3pm ET

Western University is situated on the traditional territories of the Anishinaabeg, Haudenosaunee, Lunaapeewak and Attawandaron peoples, who have longstanding relationships to the land and region of southwestern Ontario and the City of London. The local First Nation communities of this area include Chippewas of the Thames First Nation, Oneida Nation of the Thames, and Munsee Delaware Nation. In the region, there are eleven First Nation communities and a growing Indigenous urban population. SOGS values the significant historical and contemporary contributions of local and regional First Nations and all of the Original peoples of Turtle Island.
