Student Wellbeing Officers  are available Monday to Friday from 9am-5pm. The Student Wellbeing Officers are friendly, supportive staff who can help you deal with any personal issues that may arise. As well as offering confidential support, they can also help you find sources of advice and support from outside the University, including counselling, mental health and sexual health services.

Wellbeing drop-ins take place from 1-2pm each weekday at the Student Wellbeing Office in the Richardson Building on Digby Stuart campus. There is also a further drop-in from 5-6pm every Tuesday. The drop-in sessions are available to all students, especially if you need urgent wellbeing support and/or have not received a reply from your Student Wellbeing Officer within 48 hours.
