The Sexual Assault Centre of the McGill Students’ Society (SACOMSS) is a volunteer-run organization committed to supporting survivors of sexual assault and their allies through direct support, advocacy, and outreach.
Our services include Drop-In and Line (DIAL), Support Groups, Advocacy, and Outreach. Additionally, we offer sexual assault sensitivity training to McGill and Montreal groups, provide information and referrals, and organize events to raise awareness about sexual assault.

UPDATE (Winter 2017): Construction on the front ramp to the University Centre (3480 McTavish St) is currently ongoing, meaning the ramp cannot be used. However, the main entrance (via stairs) and card access (after hours) will remain accessible, and those with reduced mobility can use the south-side entrance or the Brown Building to access the University Centre.
