Due to the COVID-19 outbreak and advice from the UK Government, we will now be hosting the Wellbeing Cafe online on the Zoom meeting platform.

The Virtual Wellbeing Cafe is a safe place to connect with

other students in a virtual meet up.


Highlights include:

  • the opportunity to chat with other students interested in supporting their own wellbeing at university
  • the chance to take part in informal online games and quizzes
  • occasional guests attending to lead discussions on particular topics, or run activities

There will always be a member of staff from the Wellbeing Service there to meet and greet you as you join the zoom group.
