Introduction to Student Services

 Student Life & Support - Student Wellbeing

The wellbeing of our students is at the heart of the mission, ethos and values of St Mary's. The Student Services team offers a warm and friendly welcome and is available to assist, guide and support students with any minor hassles or major headaches that may crop up along the way. Our doors are open to all students, and, with a team of experienced professionals, we assist with specific needs and also offer general advice and guidance and pastoral care.

Student Services is generally the 'first port of call' for students and families needing advice or assistance in an emergency. The Student Services Centre is lift accessible, located on the top floor of the J Building. Student Services maintains a close relationship with other staff members also offering pastoral care and support, such as the Resident Mentors, Chaplaincy, Security and the Students' Union. These relationships also extend to external professional services, for example, local police, community health services, including mental health, social services, etc.

The Student Services Centre is an inclusive and confidential service as detailed in our confidentiality policy.
