Your Wellbeing

Your health

If you’re moving away from home it’s important that one of the first things you do is register with a local doctor in Northampton.  If you’re living in halls of residence at our Waterside Campus you should register with our on-campus Doctors Surgery. This way they’ll have access to your medical records and be able to take the best care of you if you need medical advice while living away from home.

Please note that due to the recent COVID-19 outbreak, the Doctor’s Surgery at Waterside has been closed. If you are a patient of the surgery please call 01604 644126 to make an essential telephone appointment booking.

Emotional and Mental Health

Your mental and emotional health is just as important as your physical health. If you are experiencing emotional or mental health difficulties our Counselling and Mental Health Team offer drop in sessions and one to one appointments.

Additional Needs or Disability Support

If you are disabled or have additional needs, the Additional Student Support and Inclusion Services Team (ASSIST) can help you to access all aspects of university life, take control of your learning and enhance your employability skills.

Applying for Disabled Students’ Allowances (DSAs)?

Our independent Needs Assessment Centre (NAC) can provide you with assessments to support your application for the Disabled Students’ Allowance.

Support for International Students

The International Student Support  offers advice in a range of areas including visa and immigration as well as organising your International Orientation Programme. For full information on what support they can provide visit their Meet the Team page.

Multi-Faith Chaplaincy

Operating as a part of Student Services, the Multi-Faith Chaplaincy Team draws from a number of faith traditions and works for the benefit of all students – regardless of faith, belief, sexuality, or gender.

You are welcome to drop in at any time to talk, meet with others, pray or simply enjoy some quiet time.

Residential Life Team

If you are a student living in halls of residence, our Residential Life Team can support you. Whether you are adjusting to living independently, need support with flat mates, or simply need someone to talk to.
