Feeling Lonely

While loneliness can significantly influence our well-being, there are proactive measures you can explore to alleviate its effects.

We’ve partnered with the NHS to bring you information on some of the most common issues our students face during their time at university.

Find out more about the symptoms, causes and support available from the NHS, the university and self-help resources.
