The Student Support Office coordinates our health and wellbeing services. We are here to help you find the support you need when you are unwell. Read on for more information on:
We help facilitate students' access to basic healthcare and to promote physical and mental wellbeing. If you have left home to come to University, you should register promptly with a local GP. Students living in the postcods listed below may register with the University of London Central Institutions Health Service (CIHS):
London WC1E 6DP
020 7636 7628
You can also use the NHS services search to find a GP near to where you live; this should be done as soon as you have proof of address as you will not be seen until you are fully registered.

We have a counsellor available on site two half days a week providing free, confidential service for emotional and psychological difficulities related to your time as a student. You are welcome to make use of this free service for your general mental wellbeing or for advice on how to access other NHS psychological therapies.
