For most students, CU Coventry is a great place to be and can be some of the most enjoyable times of your lives. For those students in difficulty, welfare support is here to offer guidance as part of the Customer Services team. CU Coventry students have access to a Welfare Adviser who can offer support by providing a broad range of advice and guidance on personal, practical and emotional issues.
The Welfare Adviser works closely with all academic and professional staff, as well as external agencies, so is able to signpost and refer students to other services who can also offer support.
You can also access a number of self-help guides to support your health and wellbeing. The guides are user friendly and contain detailed information, exercises, coping strategies and resources for a wide range of common mental health conditions.
To book an appointment please visit our Health & Wellbeing portal and book under the service type welfare and disability - CU Coventry. Alternatively you may wish to discuss an issue, in which case email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The campus has excellent facilities, landscaped areas and buildings are fully accessible, providing an environment that can be enjoyed by everyone, including people with physical and sensory disabilities.
Our aim is to ensure that support is in place when you arrive at University. We are therefore happy to provide information and guidance before you complete your application via email or at an Open Day.
Support and guidance is also provided for students’ with disabilities and long term health conditions. This includes assistance with the Disabled Student’s Allowance (DSA).
If you are a Care Leaver (i.e. you have been in looked after care for at least 13 weeks since the age of 14 and were in care on your 16th birthday) there is lots of support available to help you settle into university life and make the most of your time here. Below is some of the support available for care leavers:
