New Health and Wellbeing Centre opens

The brand new facility is the University’s latest investment in student mental health and wellbeing and will be open for appointments from Monday 21 September.

The Centre, located at 7 Bristo Square, will be a hub for students to access a range of essential services, bringing them together under one roof for the first time.

The development of this new Centre is an incredibly exciting initiative which will put student wellbeing at the heart of the University’s city centre campus. It will make it easier for students to access support and will expand the range of spaces and services that are on offer to students to promote resilience and wellbeing. This development is a fantastic example of the University’s commitment to delivering excellent wellbeing services.

Support hub

The fully accessible building is home to the following services:

As part of our health and wellbeing offering, we also provide support and encourage members of our University community to come forward if they have experienced sexual violence or gender-based violence (GBV).

Increasing our support offering

Over the past academic year, the University has committed further investment to improve our health and wellbeing offering.

The University will continue to focus on prevention and early intervention, and this funding will enable mental health training to be developed further, as well as improving staff and student awareness of how to access support.

Further information about the Health and wellbeing services provided by the University can be found on our website.
