Support for Staff and Students

Last updated 16 November 2022.

Support for students

  • In the first instance, you can access support through your College’s Student Support Office. Staff within the Colleges are here to help you and, where possible, to answer any queries you may have. They can also signpost you to other support services available.
  • The Counselling and Mental Health Service can provide emotional support to students. Most students are referred to the service via the Student Support Office in Colleges. Students can also self-refer via the Counselling webpages.
  • Our chaplains are available to students of all faiths, beliefs and worldviews and provide a non-judgemental listening ear.
  • Students requiring financial assistance can find out more about options available to them, as well as advice and guidance, via our Cost of Living Hub.
  • Students can also access support from Durham Students’ Union and its societies.
