Student wellbeing pilot in main library launches on 4 November 2019
The Division of Campus Life is partnering with the Library to pilot a student wellbeing desk from 4 November, which will offer information, advice and guidance about the University’s support offer. The pilot has been established to offer a more visible and accessible first point of enquiry for students seeking support who are unsure about where to go, or who have struggled to access existing provision.
Staff at the desk will help students to find the most appropriate support for their needs. Students will continue to seek support from their Schools, in residences and directly from central support services as they do now, so please continue to signpost to existing provision.
During the pilot period the desk will operate between 10am and 4pm, which we will review once we have established levels and patterns of demand in this more visible location. The pilot will also assess the value of incorporating a more permanent student experience offer in the Library as part of its redevelopment plans.
The Library student wellbeing desk will run alongside the provision that currently exists in the Atrium in University Place. We will continue to offer wellbeing support from the Atrium during the pilot period, and will review this at the end of term based on the results of the library pilot.
