Student Benefits Plan

Your SAMRU Health and Dental Benefits Plan

The Students’ Association, through Gallivan & Associates Student Networks, provides students with a comprehensive set of extended health and dental insurance benefits. Students taking nine credits or more at Mount Royal University are automatically enrolled in the Student Health and Dental Plans. The fees for these plans are collected by MRU and remitted to SAMRU to pay the plan premiums for students.

The Winter 2017 opt-out, opt-in, and family add-on deadline was Friday, February 3, 2017 at 4:00 p.m.

If you opted out of your student benefits, your opt-out cheque will be ready for pick up in March. You can pick up your cheque at the Student Benefits Plan Office (Z001, in the basement of Wyckham House), or at our booth on Main Street by West Gate on the following dates in the Winter 2017 semester: March 6, 9, 13, 14, 20, 27, 28, 29, 30.

For more information about opt-out, opt-in, and family add-on deadlines, information about your coverage, or to activate your benefit account, please visit the Mount Royal portal at, or visit the Student Benefits Plan Office.
