Welcome to HealthyU


Welcome to HealthyU

University Life

Healthy body, healthy mind is a well-used saying, but it is perhaps most relevant while you are at University.

You may be living away from home, experiencing a different culture, trying to manage on a student budget and juggling a busy social life whilst studying. All this can impact on your health.

To support you to make the most of your time at University, HealthyU is here to provide information and advice on a range of health issues important to students. Check out our events page for information on activities during the year.

You may also find this resource, produced by Student Minds, a helpful tool for managing the transition to university. 

The guide includes lots of useful information for new students - from paying bills, study skills and flatmate issues, to identity and independence. 

Embedded throughout is how to maintain good mental health and seek help as needed.

Get information online, from HealthyU campaigns or at regular hall road shows.
