Quest Health and Recreation Services

Health and Wellness:

  • On-campus Health Clinic
    • The health clinic is open one morning and one afternoon a week, in order to accommodate students depending on which time table they have. The on-campus clinic is a great alternative to other local options such as Emergency or the Walk-in Clinic. Book online at http://questu.checkappointments.com.
  • Counsellors
    • Our campus counsellors are available Monday to Saturday on an individual appointment basis. As well as one-on-one sessions, the counselling services also provide group sessions. The qualified counsellors can offer one-time service, or longer-term support if needed. Appointments and counsellor bios can be viewed at www.portal.questu.ca under Services/Student Affairs.
  • The Lumen Room
    • The Lumen Room is Quest’s sex, gender, sexuality, and health related resource centre. The trained staff are there to discuss emotional, intellectual, and sexual well-being with students. They provide safer sex supplies, and tea! Hours are from 4:30-8:30pm Monday through Thursday, and 12:00-4:00pm Saturday and Sunday. They are located on Ossa 4th.
  • Floor rep on call/res council/faculty advisors
    • Your floor reps are always available to lend a helping hand. They are a great resource to access to settle roommate disputes, questions about life on campus, or just a friendly face to chat with. In the evenings there are one or two floor reps on call, who can be reached at 604-815-7421.
  • Security
    • Although it is a good idea to always speak to floor reps first before escalating a situation, security is available on campus as well. If a floor rep has been contacted and needs more assistance, they will then contact security. They are also a great resource for locating stolen or missing goods, such as bags and bikes. You can contact them at 604-389-8086.

 

Sports and Recreation:

  • Weight room/cardio area
    • The weight room and cardio space at the Recplex is open daily from 6:00 AM to 10:00 PM every day. Most of the time there is a student staff member in the office as well, who is available to provide information about the space, and loan out gear. While the weight room is generally quite busy in the evenings, off hours are from 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM if you are seeking a quieter space to exercise in. Women’s Hours will be starting again soon, Mondays and Wednesdays from 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM.
  • Squash courts
    • Although the room looks small, you can get an unbelievable amount of running in during a game of squash. If you’re looking for a fast-paced, exciting indoor sport, consider squash. Racquets and balls are available from the Recplex office. For more information on everything squash, subscribe to the group within the Quest Students University Canada Students on Facebook.
  • Kermode Cave
    • With the wetter months rolling in, it might be time to bring your bouldering ambitions indoors. The Kermode Cave is run by an excellent group of student climbers who really know their stuff. Open every evening Monday – Friday from 6:00 PM – 10:00PM, it’s a great way to sharpen your real rock skills, and get some evening exercise in. It is open on Tuesday and Thursday mornings as well from 6:45 AM to 8:45 AM.
  • Field
    • If there aren’t teams or groups using the field, it’s fair game. Kick a soccer ball around, toss a frisbee, or get some friends together and play some Spike Ball. There isn’t a better place to spend a sunny afternoon.
  • Tennis Courts
    • The tennis courts are available for student use year-round. Racquets and tennis balls can be borrowed from the Recplex. Contact security for court access.
  • Intramurals
    • Intramurals are a great way to try out new spots in a friendly and supportive atmosphere, meet new people, and get some exercise! Take a look at this month’s intramural schedule.

Parker participates in numerous sports and activities on and around campus, and he’s excited to see Quest athletics and recreation covered in the Mark Newspaper. If you’ve got a story idea rattling around about sports or health on campus, track him down and he would love to brainstorm it together.
