Other Helpful Supports


Transportation Services

We encourage commuting to York as an alternative to single occupant vehicles and support community members taking public transit, carpooling, biking and walking. York offers shuttle services, bike rentals on-campus and a carsharing program.


Childcare on Campus

We have two childcare centres at our Keele campus for the children of our students and employees. Both provide a caring and educational environment. The York Co-operative Daycare Centre welcomes children aged 6 weeks to 10 years old. The Lee Wiggins Childcare Centre offers care to children aged 18 months to five years old. 


Community Safety

The Community Safety Department works closely with our community partners to provide services that ensure the safety of York's campuses, including goSAFE, emergency preparedness, on-campus security services and the YorkU Safety App.


Equity and Inclusion

Our Centre for Human Rights, Equity and Inclusion upholds human rights and removes barriers through teaching, community engagement and case-resolution services. The Centre promotes and builds a respectful, equitable, diverse and inclusive university community. 


Writing Centres

York's multiple writing centres offer one-to-one writing and English as a Second Language (ESL) support, as well as disability support, workshops and group sessions.

Research and Study in our Libraries

We believe that libraries are much more than places to house materials or access them electronically. Our six libraries have 3 million-plus printed volumes, 750,000 e-books and more than 90,000 full text e-journals. We also have helpful librarians who can guide you with your research and references. In addition to answering 150,000 in-person reference questions each year, they are available via booked consultations, e-mail, text and live chat. They also host research seminars, workshops and guest lectures.

Our libraries are also comfortable spaces in which you can study, with 500 computer workstations and 2,900 study seats.
 

Access Peer Support

Who better to help you succeed and feel at home than a current York student? Peer Mentors and Peer Health Educators offer you enthusiastic and understanding support and guidance.
