Wellbeing and support

Keeping you safe

Your wellbeing is hugely important to us. We want to ensure you to feel safe, supported and valued within our campus community. Whatever you need – practical advice, emotional support, space to relax and think, or opportunities to build positive connections with other members of our community – we want to help you enjoy the best possible student experience here at Warwick.

Academic support

You’ll meet your personal tutor in your academic department for regular catch-ups to discuss your progress and any concerns or questions you may have around your course. The Dean of Students and Faculty Senior Tutors oversee the personal tutor system, and work closely with Wellbeing Support Services and academic departments.

Support in your accommodation

When you live on campus, staff and postgraduate students in the Residential Life Team will live alongside you. They will be there if you need someone to chat to and can help you adjust to living away from home among new people.

Your wellbeing

We provide a range of support, including self-help resources, skills sessions, one-to-one appointments, psychological support, email counselling, therapy groups and mentoring. Our University Chaplains are also on hand to listen and provide a space to reflect, whether you have faith or just need someone to talk to.

Support with disabilities

Our specialist team can provide support and advice with managing the impact of a disability, including specific learning differences, mental health, autism spectrum and long-term medical conditions.

Health and medical care

If you are registered on campus, you can access a range of NHS services through our University Health Centre. This is located on central campus, offering advice and treatment from male and female doctors, and nursing staff.

Financial advice

If you want to talk to someone about any financial issues or you have questions about government grants and loans, and University scholarships and bursaries, our Student Funding funding team are there to help. They can also offer budgeting advice to help make your money go further.

Students’ Union 

The Students' Union has its own advice centre, providing free, confidential advice on all aspects of student life. It also runs Nightline, a confidential and non-judgmental listening service, run by students, which is open from 9pm to 9am.


Our Security Team provides a 24-hour service to ensure a safe and secure environment for staff and students. They can provide general assistance as well as an emergency response.
