Mental health and wellbeing
Current students can find us on iCity
Student Services info is available on our student portal, iCity (A university login is required).
We offer advice and support whether you are thinking about applying to university, are in the process of applying or currently studying here.
Our experienced, professional advisers can help if you are experiencing all kinds of issues, including:
- Concerns about your wellbeing – anything that is getting in the way of your studying and enjoying life at university, including concerns about relationships, sexuality and gender, accommodation difficulties, healthy lifestyle and homesickness.
- Emerging mental health issues – sleeping problems, feeling anxious or isolated, experiencing low mood, thinking about harming yourself
- Diagnosed mental health difficulties or illness
You don’t have to get to crisis point before you talk to us. Every year, we see around 350 students who have all kinds of wellbeing concerns or mental health support needs, so you are not alone in what you are experiencing.
Our services are free, confidential and can be accessed on or near to the site where you are studying. We can provide one-off general advice, or longer-term support, including a mentoring service for students in receipt of Disabled Students’ Allowances.
We also provide an information and guidance service for young people leaving local authority care who are thinking about coming to university, applying or currently studying here.
