RRC is a health-promoting college. Through our Healthy Minds Healthy College initiative, we offer many mental health-promoting activities and events throughout the year to encourage well-being, reduce stigma about mental illness, and build positive relationships.
Located at both the Notre Dame and Exchange District Campuses, our Health Service Centres are staffed by professional nurses who can respond to emergency medical situations and provide healthy lifestyle information and tips for avoiding illness. If you’re feeling under the weather, they can help get you back on your feet as soon as possible!
Fitness and Recreation
Whether you’re building up muscle, shedding a few pounds, or working off stress before an exam, our wellness facilities can help you maintain a healthy, active lifestyle.
