Wellbeing Services in CU

By FLrla 24 Jan 2022

When it comes to student wellbeing, Coventry University staff aim to make sure that they are provided with the best resources possible in the event of a problem.

Most of you have certainly seen Health & Wellbeing banners all across campus, whether in University-owned housing or inside numerous buildings.

If students use the QR code supplied to access the website, they will be directed straight to the Health and Wellbeing Services that are available to them as a Coventry University Group student.

Students can obtain information about the following topics in this section:

  • Bereavement support
  • Staying safe
  • Mental Health and Counselling
  • Spirituality and faith
  • Harassment & Hate
  • Exercise/keeping active
  • Sexual Health
  • Welfare
  •  Disabilities

Nobody is immune to personal issues. And we understand that while you are with us, you may encounter a variety of concerns such as homesickness, grief, feeling overwhelmed with studies, relationship breakdown, family troubles, illness, domestic abuse, sexual abuse, or other personal issues. At the same time, we recognise that any of these factors could have a detrimental impact on your studies, thus we are here to assist you. We can provide:

  • 30 minutes face-to-face sessions with one of our welfare advisors
