Welfare Advisers

Welfare Advisers

Having worked with students for many years, our Welfare Advisers have a wealth of experience in dealing with the wide range of difficulties which you could encounter, while studying in Cambridge. You are encouraged to speak to either of them as soon as things start to go wrong, or simply to meet for a chat if you are feeling a bit miserable—or happy!

Please email or call to set a convenient time, or attend the health centre drop-in each weekday in term between 8.30am and 9.30am.
