- Linking in with relevant services and sources of help in the local community
- Sexual violence/harassment signposting and referral options
- Communicating with key staff, such as senior tutors and personal tutors in academic departments
- Eligibility and how to apply for the central Goldsmiths systems such as taking a break from study (interruption) and extenuating circumstances
- Peer support available such as the Dedicated Listeners, PAL mentors, Students' Union societies and activities as well as peer support groups available in the local community
We hold a daily Wellbeing drop-in:
- Mon-Thu 2.30pm to 3.30pm
- Fri 9.30am to 10:30am
On the days of the UCU strike the drop-in will take place in the Loring Management Centre.
On other days it will be in RHB 123.
Register to meet privately for a 15-20 minute appointment with one of the team. Please note last registration for the drop in is 15min prior to the end of the session.
There are limited slots available each day but if the slots are filled an appointment can be offered instead.
If it is not possible to make the drop in times email the Wellbeing Team at firstname.lastname@example.org to ask a question or book an appointment at a time that is convenient.
