We're here to support you! We may be working remotely but we're still "here" to provide you with the services that you need.

Service Notice

University of Alberta Sexual Assault Centre is still here to support you; however, in light of physical distancing benefits in regards to the spread of COVID-19, our current operations have changed. As of November 25, 2020, we are returning to providing all services remotely, and there are no staff in our office during operating hours. As such, all Crisis Intervention and Psychological Support sessions will now be provided virtually or over the phone until further notice. To access our Virtual Drop-In Support, click here

To make a crisis intervention support appointment and for all other inquiries, please call the Sexual Assault Centre’s main line at 780-492-9771 or email us at sexualassaultcentre@ualberta.ca. Additionally, we have cancelled all remaining anti-sexual violence education presentations provided by our service, and all future workshop requests are suspended until further notice. To request online learning materials from our service, including links to our Centre’s educational videos, workshop slides, and handouts, please email edcoord@ualberta.ca.

About Our Centre

The U of A Sexual Assault Centre (UASAC) provides drop-in crisis intervention support to survivors of sexual violence and their supporters, as well as comprehensive educational workshops for the campus community. We actively work towards creating a campus community free of sexual violence and operate from a feminist, anti-oppressive, intersectional, trauma-informed, and person-centered framework. Keeping that in mind, it is important for us to recognize our Centre’s ongoing occupation of ᐊᒥᐢᑲᐧᒋᐋᐧᐢᑲᐦᐃᑲᐣ, or Amiskwaciwâskahikan (Edmonton), Treaty 6 territory and the ancestral home of the Papaschase Cree. We understand that our participation in this colonial project complicates our relationship to anti-sexual violence prevention and education work, as the mere existence of our service is dependent on the continued disregard for Indigenous sovereignty. Acknowledging this complicated relationship is only the beginning of our work; we are committed to unpacking and understanding the responsibility we have to each other and to this land.


All services are free of charge and are available to people of all genders, sexualities, and backgrounds. Each person's individual recovery process will be respected.
