Student Wellbeing

Student Wellbeing help and advise students throughout their studies at Royal Holloway.

We are here to make students aware of the advice and wellbeing services available and always encourage students to come forward to seek help and advice. 

Coming to Royal Holloway will be a big change for all students and adapting to university life can be difficult but we encourage students to embrace opportunities and make the most of their time at Royal Holloway.  University is not always a plain sailing journey and we are here to listen and help when you most need it. If you would like to discuss what support is available to you during your time as a student here please contact Student Wellbeing. Also if you are worried about a friend do get in touch so we can reach out to offer support or guidance to them.

Who we are 

You can contact the team by email or visit their main offices - Founder's East, rooms 129 and 131. 

What we do

  • Provide general support and advice on wellbeing for all students.  We offer triage appointments with a Wellbeing Adviser to hear your concerns and to offer support with referral to other internal or external services where needed.
  • Encourage members of the campus community to alert us to concerns or vulnerability and encourage students to seek advice and guidance when needed - before the issue becomes overwhelming.
  • Assist with the transition and adjustment to university life. 
  • Support students in the continuation of their studies and enable them to make the most of their all-round experience at Royal Holloway.
  • Plan health and wellbeing campaigns and events including alcohol & drugs awareness and education and promotion of good wellbeing.
  • Co-ordinate and implement the Be A Good Neighbour strategy with support available for students living locally.  This includes Halls to Home guidance in term three to support transition to living in the private sector.
  • Offer and manage support and follow up for complex issues including harassment, crime, and sexual violence - including referral to external support services where appropriate.
  • Throughout the year we work with the Students' Union, other Professional Services and Academic Schools to promote wellbeing campaigns and events.  Look out for our wellbeing events on campus and in the community during the year and keep up to date with what is happening via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Wellbeing encompasses physical, mental and sexual health, stress, tiredness, relationships & lifestyle choices. Wellbeing and studying go hand in hand, if one is suffering then it is bound to impact the other and everybody has times when their wellbeing suffers, whether it be temporary or longer term. Either way the most important thing is knowing how to contact us when you want guidance, information or advice.
