Welcome

Rooted in Indigenous perspectives, Fleming Aboriginal Student Services strives to nourish students’ spirits on their learning path by supporting connection to  community, culture, and self.

We provide cultural programming, one-to-one student support, and meaningful  partnerships with Indigenous organizations and local service providers to foster  student success and connect students to community.

CULTURAL SPACES ON CAMPUS

Access support and utilize the Aboriginal Student Lounge to study, take a well-deserved break, or visit with friends.  Come by the Tipi, located at the Sutherland Campus and enjoy a visit with a member of the Aboriginal Student Services Team or a student firekeeper. Interested in firekeeping? Let us know.

The College is smudge friendly, and you may smudge in the Aboriginal Student Lounge at any time. If you are smudging elsewhere, please let us know in advance so we may notify
those who could be negatively affected due to allergies.

Aboriginal Student Lounges are located in:

  • Room C2 129 at the Sutherland Campus:
    go down the first set of stairs towards Tim Hortons, it is located at the bottom of the stairs on your left
  • Room 180A at Frost Campus
    go downstairs, pass the Cafeteria, when the hallway splits, it is the first door on your right

Miigwetch, Nia:wen, and we look forward to seeing you in the lounge!
