Your health and wellbeing.

We care about your wellbeing. Coming to university is likely to bring a number of changes to your life. It can be really enjoyable and inspiring, but it can also be challenging. We're here to support you as you begin your University journey.

As well as lots of specialist support and services, we've got loads of wellbeing and community activities, from sport and puppy therapy to campus allotments, choirs and crafting.

Support for your wellbeing

During University, it is natural to experience both highs and lows. If at any time while with us, you feel stressed, anxious, lonely or low our Mental Wellbeing team can offer you confidential advice and support including counselling.

Get in touch with our Mental Wellbeing Team now.

The support I got from the Mental Wellbeing Team has meant that I am now able to manage my anxiety much better and my grades are improving. I feel I have learnt coping skills that will benefit me for the rest of my life.

Out of hours support

Out of hours there's Nightline, a student listening service, and the Big White Wall, an online support service. Whether it's speaking to other students, or a counsellor, there will be someone to talk to.

Wellbeing and community activities

Sometimes it can be just good to talk and if you ever just need to chat there are plenty of opportunities, from our Chaplaincy who offer a confidential listening service to Chooseday Chill - a Tuesday club for students to meet and talk over free tea and toast.

The uni offers lots of activities to support your mental and physical wellbeing. Get a taster by watching current student Katie's vlog '10 free wellbeing activities':

Throughout the year we support a range of events and campaigns from World Mental Health Day, Movember, and Time To Talk to University Mental Health Day.
