Health & well-being

The well-being centre is a friendly and relaxing place where you can attend drop-in sessions, short courses and workshops, have a complementary therapy treatment or find out more about a particular health issue. Additional well-being services include the opportunity to obtain one-to-one nutritional advice or have a mini health check.

Meningitis vaccine

Freshers across the UK are being urged by meningitis charities to get their MenACWY vaccine before starting university.

Being exposed to new people, bacteria and viruses at the start of university makes you more susceptible to meningitis.

If you're under 25 and heading to university for the first time you can protect yourself and others by getting the MenACWY vaccine free from your GP. We recommend you visit your GP before coming to University to find out more about the vaccine and arrange your immunisation.

Local GP practices will be present during welcome weekend on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 September if you'd like to register as a new patient or ask about the MenACWY vaccine.

Find out more:

MenACWY directly protects vaccinated people from four different strains of meningococcal meningitis and septicaemia (groups A, C, W and Y) and also stops them from carrying the bacteria in the back of the nose and throat.

Disability

We provide a service to students who are visually impaired, hearing impaired, wheelchair users or people with mobility difficulties, medical conditions, autistic spectrum disorders, mental health services users and people with specific learning difficulties (for example, dyslexia). This list is not exhaustive.
