Resource Centres

About the MUNSU Resource Centres

The Students' Union currently operates seven resource centres. The Centres were created out of concern for the needs of students who are historically oppressed and marginalised. Each Centre serves as a peer resource and support centre and has a mandate to challenge oppression and discrimination on campus. For more information about any of the centres, contact the Director of Student Life.
