Welfare Walkabout: What support can you get from the University?

The University’s Welfare Walkabout, formerly known as the Welfare Knock, will be taking place during the weeks beginning 7 and 14 October.

During these weeks, between 4.00pm and 7.00pm, staff volunteers will be visiting you in your halls to check everyone is okay and talk to you about the support and wellbeing services that are available to you.

Bernie Topham, Chief Operating Officer and Deputy Vice-Chancellor said: “The welfare of our students is important to the University and our staff, which is why we’re proud to run this campaign to make sure that students are aware of the support available to them while they adjust to life at university.”

Staff will be visiting University owned halls, Unite, Unilife, Hello Student and Student Housing Company Halls.
