Being Well at Wolfson

For confidential listening and advice students can speak to any member of the College welfare team made up of the Senior Tutor, Academic Registrar, Welfare Officers and Peer Supporters.

Welfare Officers

If you are experiencing a welfare problem please e-mail the Welfare Officers (details below) and they will get back to you as soon as they can. Our Welfare Officers are trained in medical fist aid, mental health and listening skills but they are not medical professionals or counsellors. The College cannot guarantee 24/7 availability and if you have an emergency overnight, please contact the Lodge on 01865 274100.
