Student well-being and student safety is a priority for the Students’ Union. For you to get a great student experience you need to know you have the right support in place for you.
Here we have outlined a number of support mechanism we hope will be useful for you:
On Campus Support
If you are unsure where to turn the Students’ Union advice and support team offer a drop in service where you can come and talk to a member of staff and we can talk you through all of the mechanisms for support at your disposal.
How to be happier
‘How to be Happier’ is an awareness campaign to encourage students to look after their health and wellbeing (both physical and mental).
We have taken the guidelines advised by the NHS to show students how they can improve their wellbeing by getting involved in SU and university activities.
Big White Wall
