We want you to feel part of our university community, learn lots and truly enjoy your time here. We also acknowledge that student life comes with its own unique challenges that at times can be difficult and you may need help to respond to some of the challenges you will face. There are many supports in the university that you can access when you need them. We are here for you! 

The Support Wheel is an easy way to see what support is available to you, based on your needs and how you're feeling. It gives us a chance to meet you where or how you are - and help you get to where you want to be.

I need to talk to someone

There is always someone you can talk to. Inside or outside of the University community, you have more connections and people who are there for you than you realize.
