Safe Place for Students

The Student Ombuds Office offers a safe place for undergraduate and graduate students of the University of Calgary to discuss student related issues, interpersonal conflict, academic and non-academic concerns, and many other problems. What does an Ombuds do?

You can speak freely to us because we promise to keep our discussions confidential, and we are not part of any formal university process. We do not take sides in disputes and operate independently of the university reporting only to a board representing equally the Students’ Union, Graduate Students Association and the university. Principles of the Ombuds Office

Contact us should an issue arise which requires answers. We will listen to your concerns, give you information about the university's policies and procedures, help you evaluate and assess your situation, and assist you in making plans to resolve the conflict.

You control the process and decide which course of action to take. And we respect your choices.
