Student wellbeing desk offers more visible and accessible first point of enquiry and signposting for students seeking support
The Division of Campus Life is partnering with the Library to pilot a student wellbeing desk, which will offer information, advice and guidance about the University’s support offer.
The pilot desk has been established to offer a more visible and accessible first point of enquiry and signposting for students seeking support who are unsure about where to go, or who have struggled to access existing provision. Staff on the desk will help students to find the most appropriate support for their needs.
During the pilot period the desk will operate in term time between 10am and 4pm Monday to Friday, and opening times will be reviewed levels and patterns of demand in this more visible location have been established.
The Library student wellbeing desk will run alongside the provision that currently exists in the Atrium in University Place, which also includes Careers and the International Programmes Office. Wellbeing support will continue to be offered from the Atrium during the pilot period, and this will be reviewed at the end of term based on the results of the library pilot.
The pilot will also assess the value of incorporating a more permanent student experience offer in the Library as part of its redevelopment plans.
