Be Well@NCL

Be Well@NCL is our collection of tried and tested books we've chosen in partnership with our Student Health and Wellbeing service and other health professionals. You and anyone at the university can borrow these books to help understand and manage your mental health and wellbeing.

Give it a Go is an activity programme for all students and staff where you can try new things. It's open to all abilities and you don't need a membership.

Sport and Active Wellbeing

Look after your physical health and mental wellbeing by taking part in our sport and active wellbeing activities.


Why not develop new skills and responsibilities while supporting our local community by becoming a volunteer? Our Volunteer Union offers this service, and it can benefit your mental and physical health while helping others.
