We know university can be a challenging time, and that you may experience a range of issues when you are here. You are not alone, and you don’t have to get through it by yourself.
The Student Welfare team is here to help you with any personal difficulties you may experience during your time at the University. We are professional welfare staff who are able to advise and support you on a wide range of personal and well-being issues that may impact your studies and day-to-day life.

We offer a drop-in service where you can come along and speak to someone in person.
This is available in the Carrington building, where you can go to the front desk reception and ask to speak to the Welfare Team. You can drop in between Monday – Friday 13:00 -16:00
The Counselling and Wellbeing service is part of Student Services, based in the Carrington building on Whiteknights campus. We work throughout the year to help students manage a wide range of issues, minimising the impact of any problems on their academic progress.
The service offers support including one-to-one (either face to face, on the phone or over Teams), groups, workshops, online guidance and onward referrals to other support services, and is open to all registered students (undergraduate or postgraduate) at the University, free of charge.
