Wellbeing support is a further benefit of College life. Being away from home, it is reassuring for students and their families to know that support is available at all times. This is particularly important for first year students, 30% of whom are under-18 when they arrive at College. Members of the College Leadership Team are on call every day to deal with situations which may arise out of office hours. In addition, the Student Club Executive and Resident Leaders provide invaluable peer wellbeing support to the residents.
