Your Students’ Union will represent you, listen to your issues, champion your concerns and share your stories, to ensure you not only enjoy, but also get the most out of your student experience. There are a range of services, activities and opportunities available to students to encourage a positive mindset to support you through your studies.
The Students’ Union Advice Centre can help with any academic issues, welfare benefits, housing or financial issues which might be negatively impacting on your studies and wellbeing.
The University’s Student Support, Health & Wellbeing Service is also available to all UCLan students. You can access the on-campus Medical Centre and pharmacy, as well as having access to the trained counsellors and mental health advisors.
