Welcome to Ombuds Services

The Ombudsperson is available. Please use the Contact Us form.


Various resources are available to you for support with mental health, online courses, and more. It is ok to ask for help. There is an FAQ specifically for Students, Faculty, and Staff on the COVID 19 webpage.

We are a safe and trusted place to ask questions and explore options.

Ombuds Services is an independent office jointly funded by Carleton University and Carleton University Students Association (CUSA). The Graduate Students’ Association (GSA) contributes to CUSA’s funds for the office. Both undergraduate and graduate students are welcome to use our service. We help hundreds of students every year to find clarity on issues and explore options in situations of conflict on and off campus.
