Who We Are

As the name suggests we support student’s Wellbeing, such as signposting people to mental health and support services within the university or the City of York.

Our aim is to try and make students are comfortable and are settle into university life. We have held a variety of events and activities throughout the year including

  •  Constantreat, where every Monday evening, we provide food and treats in the Forum;
  • A Puppy Distress Lounge during the exam period, where the Guide Dog Association came in with some dogs and students could come along to pet the dogs, learn about a great charity and take a break from revision.
  • We also have ‘Examination Hydration’ where we provide fruit, water and breakfasts to ensure students keep up their energy and eat healthy.

We also run lots of campaigns during the term. This terms look out for SHAG Week [Sexual Health Advice and Guidance Week] and Future Plans week.
We are here to support and represent you with regards to anything welfare and well-being related. If you have any concerns we might be able to help, be it flat life, home life or other concerns, we are here to help. That is just some of what we do and we can’t wait to meet all of you at some of our events.

Love, the Wellbeing Team
