Transitional Support Advising
Whether you are a new student or have been studying at UCalgary for several years, you may questions or uncertainties about life at UCalgary, in Calgary, or Canada. Our advisors are here to help answer questions about getting settled in Calgary, finding community, and connecting with resources on or off-campus!

- Setting up a Canadian bank account
- Getting a Social Insurance Number (SIN)
- Understanding your medical insurance options
- Understanding how to access health & wellness services
- Learning about resources for family members (partners/spouses & children)
