Services located at our Health and Wellbeing Centre
The University Pharmacy is open to students, staff and members of the public for dispensing of prescriptions, sales of medicine and toiletries and general advice.
Student Counselling Service
Our Student Counselling Service is a confidential service, offering a range of support options to help you work through mental health concerns, personal issues and difficult circumstances. The Student Counselling Service will relocate to the Health & Wellbeing Centre on DATE.
Student Disability Service
Our Student Disability Service can offer a range of support based on students’ individual needs and how their disability, learning difference or health condition affects their studies. The Student Disability Service will relocate to the Health & Wellbeing Centre in Spring 2020.
University Health Centre
The University Health Centre is an independent medical practice. It offers full general practitioner (GP) services to patients who live in the practice area.
The Wellbeing Lounge is located within the new Health and Wellbeing Centre. Its main function is to provide a quiet, composed and relaxing space at the heart of the central area where people can take time out of their busy schedules. Over time, there will be opportunities for the space to be booked out for events which promote mental health and wellbeing.
We expect all users of the Wellbeing Lounge to treat this quiet space with respect as it is in the heart of the Health & Wellbeing Centre, a working building designed to support students with their mental health and wellbeing.
If you are using the space, please tidy up after yourself, recycle and keep noise to a minimum. Thank you!
