Warwick is a close knit community so it's always easy to find someone to talk things over with. However, we recognise that there are times in everyone's university life when a little extra professional support may be helpful. So we have put in place a strong support network, to help you with an concerns - academic, personal, financial or practical.
Every student, undergraduate and postgraduate, has a personal tutor (sometimes, for postgraduates, a 'mentor) - a member of the academic staff in your department who is there to offer both academic and pastoral support.
Director of Student Support & Senior Tutor
The Director of Student Support and the Senior Tutor work closely together to help students in times of need. If you need help or advice with an issue during your time at University, it is likely that one of them will be able to help you.
All students who have accommodation on campus are provided with an excellent network of support staff called the Residential Life Team. The Residential Life team work and live alongside students within the Halls of Residences and are there to look after the welfare of their student residents and to make sure everything runs smoothly.
The University Counselling Service provides an opportunity for all students at any level and at any time of study at the University of Warwick to access professional therapeutic counselling so that they may better develop and fulfil their personal, academic and professional potential.
