Find out what support is available at your university or college.
1. Our colleges
Durham University’s colleges offer Durham University students the opportunity to access student support and wellbeing provision through their home college. This is dedicated student support and wellbeing provision, in addition to the central student support service offered by our Counselling and Disability Support Services.
2. Counselling Service
The Counselling Service is a team of trained and experienced counselling, psychological wellbeing practitioners and mental health advisors to help you manage any difficulties that are impacting your successful engagement with your studies and with University life. We are available all year round to registered students via self-referral.
3. Disability Support
Disability Support offers advice and guidance to both prospective and current students within the University. We also arrange appropriate provision for disabled students, as well as offer support to those who think they may have a disability.
4. Durham Students' Union Advice Service
The Advice Service at the Students’ Union is independent from the University, and can therefore provide impartial advice and advocacy to students on University regulations and procedures, for instance. This is something unique to our service and is something we are proud to be able to offer to our students. We believe that no student should face going through a University regulatory process, such as academic misconduct, without knowing that they can access free, impartial and confidential advice. Though independent, our advisers have good links with Colleges, University departments and services, and external organisations. This ensures students receive the best advice and support possible, and if we can’t help you directly, we’ll refer you to someone who can.
