Relationships

Relationships are a part of healthy living and can provide great benefits to our lives. Everyone deserves to be in a safe and healthy relationship.

There are factors that can make a sexual relationship healthy and enjoyable or unhealthy and possibly unsafe. Respect is the foundation for a healthy sexual relationship. It is a commitment to communicating and acting with integrity. In a healthy sexual relationship, both partners are able to express their feelings and respect each others' needs and boundaries about sex.

Take the Relationship Quiz to find out if your relationship is on track.

If your relationship moves off track there are people who can help both on campus and in the community.  You can discuss relationship issues confidentially on campus with University Counselling or University Health Service.
