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.

The DIAL hotline service can be reached by phone at (514)-398-8500.

UPDATE (JANUARY 2019): Our office and drop-in centre has been moved to the ground floor of 680 Sherbrooke due to the ongoing SSMU building closure.

The phone and drop-in hours for the week of October 21st to 25th are as follows:
Monday: phone 1:00-3:00 & 4:30-7:00 // no drop-ins
Tuesday: phone 6:00-7:00 // no drop-ins
Wednesday: phone 2:00-5:00 // no drop-ins
Thursday: phone 3:00-6:00 // no drop-ins
Friday: phone 3:00-6:00 // no drop-ins

Call us at 514-398-8500
Our drop-in centre is located on the ground floor of 680 Sherbrooke.  You can access the room by walking through the lobby of 680 Sherbrooke and through the glass doors. The drop-in centre is the first door on the left. The building is wheelchair accessible. There are no gender-neutral bathrooms in 680, but there are some located in 688 Sherbrooke.
