The University is committed to supporting the wellbeing of all of our staff and students. We are currently running a project, involving members of the People Plan and the Staff Forum, to promote employee wellbeing across all of our campuses, as part of this work these pages are being reviewed to bring together more information and resources to support employee wellbeing. Please bear with us while the information on these pages is being reviewed.

Wellbeing Peer Support

Are you experiencing poor wellbeing, emotional distress or a mental health issue and need the support of someone to talk to in confidence, then call one of our Wellbeing Peer Support volunteers.

The Wellbeing Peer Support volunteers are employees of the University who have volunteered their time. They are trained to recognise the signs and symptoms of common mental health issues, and can guide you toward the right support services.

Wellbeing Map

The health and wellbeing of staff is important to us. We have designed a wellbeing map for the Whiteknights campus to help you get the most out of the different wellbeing activities across each of our campuses. The map contains information and advice on how to keep active on campus, from following walking routes to taking a fitness class at one of our excellent sports facilities. The maps also contain useful information on 5 steps we can all take to improve our mental wellbeing.

We are currently working on Wellbeing maps for the London Road campus and Greenlands.

Download the map

The map is available to view online and download as a PDF. The map has been printed and has been distributed around the Whiteknights campus.
