Support and wellbeing

Mental health

University is a wonderful place, but it can also be stressful, and staff and students can face many challenges. The UCL support and well-being team are experts in their field, and they can provide advice and support on issues relating to well-being, disability and mental health, in a non-judgemental and safe space.

You can access the website here, where you can find information on a variety of topics including (but not limited to):

  • Health care
  • Sexual consent online training
  • Staying safe
  • Mental health and well-being
  • Disability support
  • Misconduct on campus
  • Concerns about a students and crisis support


At present, all UCL students can access 'Anxiety: Beat It and Regain Peace' course for free. It aims to support students in feeling more in control of their general anxiety and in developing a wealth of techniques to make sure they can keep their anxiety at bay into the future. This is a 12 week course accessible until 31 August 2022. 

UCL's Access to Healthcare interactive map allows students to explore the key health care locations and support teams on and around campus. Students can find their nearest GP, dentist, sexual health clinic, Covid Test centre, etc.

All students are welcome to access support provided by the UCL's First Generation Society. This support network is for all students and alumni of the first generation in their family to enter higher education and ethnic minority students. They are helping to ensure the welfare of a portion of UCL’s student body that often feels marginalised and unwelcome. Their activity supports students through an online community, regular events (career, social and skills-focused) and they are working with UCL’s Widening Participation team in relation to support their interventions.They are also running mentoring and a buddy scheme programmes.
