As the Wellbeing Service will be undergoing building works from Wednesday 9th August until Friday 18th August students and staff will not be able to access Wellbeing practitioners by dropping in to the service in Horton building. Wellbeing staff will not be able to work from the service and so no staff will be here for advice or support.

During the closure students can access the service by calling 01792 295592 or emailing wellbeing@swansea.ac.uk. Administrative staff will then arrange support or ask practitioners to call or email students with advice.

Students who have pre-booked appointments with practitioners at Singleton campus will meet with them in the Student Hub on Singleton. For Bay students appointments will be in the usual place.

We apologise in advance for any inconvenience this causes.

Best Wishes,

Wellbeing Service
