Mission Statement


Mount Saint Vincent University ta'n L'nu'k etl mawita'jik aq melkuktimi'tit kisi apoqnmasin aq kina'masin wen L'nuiktuk.


Mount Saint Vincent University’s Aboriginal Student Centre strives to provide an opportunity to empower, encourage and educate all students of all nations in an environment rooted in indigenous cultures and values.


Our Space


The Aboriginal Student Centre (ASC) supports students in an educational and culturally engaging space on the Mount campus. Since opening its doors in February 2013, the ASC has offered the opportunity for students to learn more about Aboriginal culture while giving them a place to study and hang out. The ASC staff also provides academic advising and counseling. 


The Aboriginal Student Centre is part of a larger plan for Mount Saint Vincent University, guided with advice from both an internal and external aboriginal advisory committees. The ASC was created as a place where all students could seek advice and feel at home, especially Aboriginals considering post-secondary education.


Currently located at 46 Melody Drive, the ASC contains:

  • Computer Station with Internet

  • WiFi

  • Group study area with large table to seat up to 12 people

  • A lounge, with comfortable living-room style furniture

  • Large-screen TV 

  • Printing & faxing services

  • A growing collection of Aboriginal-based resource materials, many of which are available for loan
