Health and welfare

Loughborough University has a strong tradition of looking after its students. We are able to deliver much of this through a number of guidance and wellbeing support sections.

Counselling and Disability Service

The Counselling and Disability Service provides a range of support, advice and guidance, ensuring equality of opportunity for all students.

Counselling Service

We offer students an opportunity to talk, in confidence, with a professionally trained person who is outside their immediate situation. Counselling can help to find ways forward, make decisions, gain new perspectives, discover solutions, and come to terms with and manage challenging life events.

Disability Support and Mental Health Support Teams

We offer support for students with a wide range of disabilities, including physical disabilities, Asperger’s Syndrome, sensory impairments and medical conditions.

We provide support and tuition for students who have dyslexia, dyspraxia, require maths support or who have other specific learning differences.

The Mental Health Support Team offer practical support for students who experience mental health difficulties including but not limited to, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, eating disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder, and psychosis.

Assessment Centre

There is help available on campus for students applying to their funding body or social services department for the support they require due to their disability, long-term health condition or mental health difficulties viavia an accredited DSA QAG (Disabled Student Allowance Quality Assurance Group) Assessment Centre.
Please also enquire about any wellbeing support and advice available within your school.
