Students in self-isolation

Students will have to self-isolate if they experience COVID-19 symptoms. We have many resources to support you, including health advice and practical recommendations, and support and guidance.

Support during lockdown

We recognise students may be facing additional mental health challenges due to the disruption and uncertainty caused by coronavirus (COVID-19). Full support remains available from UCL in the form of same-day appointments with our DMHW (Disability, Mental Health and Wellbeing) team, counselling with SPCS (Student Psychological and Counselling Services) and self-help resources across our Student Support and Wellbeing site. You can also read our summary of the support on offer in the 2020/21 academic year.

We are running wellbeing events open to all students in partnership with Students' Union UCL. We also have dedicated self-isolation guidance and support for students who are self-isolating.

To make an appointment with our advisers or for any further enquiries you have or support you may need, access askUCL and a member of our team will get in contact with you.

Students struggling with their mental health at this time can also access support via the NHS and online resources from Public Health England, along with support from mental health charity Mind. Further sources of information and support are Every Mind Matters, and Young Minds for young people.
