Support, safety and community

Ukraine: One year on

One year on from the Russian invasion of Ukraine, our Vice-Chancellor has spoken of the University’s long-term commitment to supporting Ukraine and those directly impacted by the war. Watch Stuart’s video message. Students and staff at Warwick have been supporting Ukrainian people over the past year. Hear from some of those supported, and helping, about their experiences.  

Wellbeing: Managing stress and anxiety

This week's wellbeing theme is around managing stress and anxiety. Some feelings of stress and anxiety are normal but if feeling stressed and anxious is getting in the way of your day-to-day functioning, then it is worth making some changes. We have lots of support for you to be able to do that. A good place to start is our Foundations of Wellbeing materials, and see our self-help pages on stress and anxiety.

Not yet had your first or second Covid-19 vaccination? Now is your chance to get vaccinated at our walk-in clinic at the Student Opportunity Hub, Senate House, (Room SH0.03).
