Wellbeing check-ins

What are check-ins?

Wellbeing check-ins are four 30 minute individual slots that run over a two hour session. The check-ins provide an opportunity for you to talk to a wellbeing practitioner about your personal concerns and find out more about available support. Following your consultation, our practitioners can signpost you to the most appropriate internal and external services available. These will replace the Mental Health and Wellbeing drop-ins by offering more opportunity for students to see a wellbeing practitoner.

Who are they for?

The check-ins are available to all students at the University, whether you have used any of our support services previously or not.

How do they work?

To register for a check-in slot please arrive 10 minutes before the start time of the session (see relevant table below). You cannot pre-book a check-in slot.

When you arrive at the check-in venue you will be assigned a slot on a first-come-first-served basis. Please ensure you have availability during the full session time as we cannot prioritise slot times. We will endeavour to see you when you visit but you may need to return on another day if spaces fill up quickly.

Aston Webb Student Hub check-in sessions:

When you arrive you will need to take a ticket at the kiosk for a 'Wellbeing Check In' and wait for your ticket to be called.
