University Wellbeing Team

Your Student Wellbeing Officer (SWO) is available to provide you with confidential emotional and practical wellbeing support for any difficulty you may have during your studies – bereavement, sexual assault and harassment, mental health difficulties, financial hardship and more. 

Each College has a Student Wellbeing Officer (SWO). Students living on campus should access support from the SWO of the College your accommodation is. Students living off-campus should access support from the SWO of the College you study at. If you are not sure who to contact please see the list below. 

If you are a student living in on-campus accommodation, you can access support out of hours from our College Warden Team. Wardens are on duty in each college to offer confidential wellbeing support between 18:00 and 08:00 Monday – Friday and all day across the weekend. The College Wardens can then refer you to a SWO for follow up support if needed.
