Support Services for Indigenous Students
This is a free confidential service for those students who self-identify as First Nations, Métis, or Inuit. The primary role of the advising office is to guide, encourage and empower students in the university environment. Indigenous Student Affairs (includes Aboriginal students, Elders, chiefs, business leaders and more) provides access to peer support, social interaction, cultural/spiritual celebrations as well as our Education Resource Library.
Indigenous Student Services is located in Iikaisskini, (Low Horn) Indigenous Gathering Place in Paterson Centre.
Hours: Monday to Friday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Directions: Follow the road past student residence, take first right at the University of Lethbridge Daycare, then take first left past Blakiston Residence to Paterson Centre. If you are on University Drive, turn left on Parkway Road West, turn left at stop sign and take the next right to Paterson Centre.
uLethbridge also has a email newsleter called the eaglesnest listserve and it's the primary email communication highway for registered University of Lethbridge Indigenous students who have self-identified. University announcements, community resources, and job postings are some of the communications that the eaglesnest forwards.
