If you need help with any health issue, either head up to the Advice Centre, who are more than willing to point you in the right direction, or visit student support services (also on the third floor), who are able to direct students to counselling services and a variety of other helpful contacts.

Sexual Health Clinic

As of Wednesday 02 November, from 1-4:30pm each Wednesday, Yorkshire MESMAC will be offering a variety of sexual health services, which can be accessed via the 2nd floor of the Student Union Building. The services offered will include advice and free condoms and sexual health screenings for Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea. The testing for this is very straightforward and involves a self-urine sample for males, or a self-swab for females. MESMAC will also offer screenings for HIV and Syphilis, which is a finger prick test and results take just 1 minute.

To access any of the above services, please present at the 2nd floor askHU desk, within the Student Union building, between 1:00pm and 4:30pm on Wednesdays and ask for MESMAC. You will then be advised of when you will be seen that afternoon. For more information in relation to MESMAC, please click on the following link http://www.mesmac.co.uk/

Student Carers

The University is committed to supporting students as effectively as possible and therefore it is important that we understand the challenges faced by our students. We have constructed a survey to allow us to gain insight into the number of our students who have caring responsibilities and the impact caring has on studying at University. The survey can be found here.

On Wednesday 13th April 2016 our local partners and members of staff from Student Wellbeing, Learning & Welfare Support will be available between 10am and 3pm to discuss support options available locally within & outside the University. We would be delighted to meet you and discuss any issues you may have in relation to your caring responsibilities and how this impacts upon your studies. Please feel free to come along and meet us on the Ground Floor of University House.
