Support and safety

Wellbeing: making and supporting friends

Friends are a key part of life, especially at university when you're away from home. We understand that it can be hard to make connections straight away and they often take time. We have some tips for you on meeting new people and making friends. Once these bonds are formed, friends can be an important source of support. Check through our advice on how to support others. For more information and resources, please see here.

Cost of Living hub: on-campus spaces and offers

Check out our Cost of Living sub-page with a focus on spaces and facilities on campus. You can find out about Warwick Retail's new offers and competitions which will run throughout Term 1, and through the Students’ Union #endperiodpoverty campaign, you can access free menstrual care products from SU HQ Reception or the SU Advice Centre.
