Student Wellbeing Service

Support Available

There is a wide range of support available to you from the Student Wellbeing Service within Queen's. Our services are free and available to registered students at the University. Find out more about support available below. Our counselling support is delivered in partnership with Inspire (external organisation). Counselling is also a free service to registered students at Queen's. If you aren't sure what support is best for you, the Student Wellbeing Service is a good starting point, if we feel you need counselling or support from another external service we can discuss that with you.

‌Drop In Service

Monday to Friday, 11:00am - 3:00pm

Due to the closure of the university campus, we have decided to move our Drop In Service to provide support remotely. Please find our contact details below for the service.

Call us: 07387 546 123

Alternatively, you can also contact us through:

StudentWellbeing@qub.ac.uk or disability.office@qub.ac.uk 

During your Drop In meeting, the Disability & Wellbeing Adviser may feel that you need a longer appointment to discuss your issues and explore suitable support options. Therefore you may be booked into a 1:1 appointment with an appropriate member of the team, or it may be that you need support from another service, such as Counselling, Advice SU or an external service. 


One to One Consultations

Meet with a Wellbeing Adviser

Students can request a meeting with a Wellbeing Adviser by completing our online form or emailing studentwellbeing@qub.ac.uk. Students will be allocated a one hour consultation appointment with a Wellbeing Adviser to discuss their issues/concerns and look at appropriate support options. Student Wellbeing Service is a free service for all students registered at the University, including students on placement and Erasmus programmes (support can be arranged via telephone/Skype). The Student Wellbeing Adviser will listen non judgementally to your issues and concerns, and talk through suitable support options. Please read our Student Support Agreement which explains how we treat the information you share with us whist receiving support.


Student Wellbeing Events

Wellbeing Events including Wellbeing on Weekdays

The Student Wellbeing Service deliver a range of workshops and events throughout the academic year. Events and workshops are based on what we find works well for students, and what students tell us they need. The full schedule is available here, and also will be available on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages. All of our events will focus on the Take 5 Steps to Wellbeing (Be Active, Connect, Take Notice, Give and Keep Learning). Check out our social media pages for more information (some events may be subject to change so best to check regularly).
