Our Wellbeing Page
We want to help our members in any situation they may arrive in during their time at Royal Holloway. The first thing to know is that you're not alone.
We want our captains and committee members to be approachable in every situation, but sometimes you might feel unsure or worried about who to contact.
Although some of us have had wellbeing training, the best place to contact may be the Student's Union, as they have guidance for all issues, regarding well-being, housing, academics and finances. So we recommend you to contact them in times of need too, visit their website: https://www.su.rhul.ac.uk/advice/
