How can the University Support you?
If you are living in halls, the university has support within halls to help with this transition. Speak to your hall warden or hall welfare rep about the way you are feeling and they will do what they can to help. Second to this, the hall committee organises a variety of social events which is a great opportunity to meet friends and find what you like at university.
The university is proud of its student’s union, which also offers opportunities during the first few weeks as well as year-round. They provide a wide variety of opportunities for you to get involved.
If you are still struggling the university offers a wellbeing and inclusivity team that you can contact which provide a range of services including the Counselling Team, Mental Health Support Team and the Wellbeing Advisers.
