Student Advice and Wellbeing Drop-in Times

Important: Drop-in times are subject to change between 2018/19 and 2019/20.

We are open Monday to Friday between 10.00 - 16.00, and are located in SL48 in the Paul Webley Wing. (Booked appointments can operate either side of these hours.)

  • Please note that our office is closed on Wednesdays between 2-3pm.

Drop-ins are short initial meetings (about 15 minutes long) with an advisor or counsellor. They are run on a first come, first served basis and can fill up very quickly, so please aim to arrive for the start of the session but no more than 30 minutes early.

If you decide to come to a drop-in, please check our most recent Friday email (titled 'Updates from Student Advice and Wellbeing') for any changes to drop-in times.

If you cannot make any of the drop-in times, please get in touch as we can make other arrangements for you to speak to an advisor or counsellor (including phone and video call appointments) outside of these times.
