Healthy living for students

The Student Welfare Service supports students to enjoy a healthy and balanced life and is able to direct and refer students to appropriate health care services at times of ill health.

Working collaboratively both within the university and with organisations outside of the university, the Student Welfare Service endeavours to ensure that information about health and direction to appropriate services is easily available for students.

The service is available to all students at the University of Leicester and supports both the physical and psychological aspects of health and wellbeing.
