We’re committed to students’ welfare and a big part of that is helping you stay well and healthy. 

Public Health England found that in 2013, there were approximately 450,000 diagnoses of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) made in England alone. The impact of STIs remains greatest in young heterosexuals under the age of 25 - 63% of chlamydia diagnoses in 2013 were in 16-24 year olds - and perhaps most concerningly, these are figures that appear to be increasing year on year. 

Our Advice Service also supplies free condoms for students that need them. Just drop into the first floor of 15 Gordon Street to get yours.
