Your Resource Centers

MUNSU currently operates seven resource centres. Our resource centres are safe meeting spaces, information and knowledge hubs, and peer support networks within the greater MUN community. Each resource centre was established in recognition of the needs of communities of students who are historically oppressed and marginalized and operate under a mandate challenging oppression and discrimination on campus.
