Welfare Advisers

Welfare Team

In addition to the Tutors we have a Welfare Team, who are based predominantly in The Health Centre, Cripps Court.

The team have a broad range of professional backgrounds and have significant experience in supporting students with health and welfare issues. The team are available to support you through any difficulties you encounter, while studying at Cambridge.

We would encourage you to contact them with any concerns you have, as they arise, or simply to meet (virtually or physically) for a chat if you are feeling down, anxious, happy or excited.

We are planning for the Health Centre to be open across Michaelmas Term where we can assist students with minor injuries and first aid. Should further treatment be indicated we will signpost students to the most appropriate service. Please call before attending

During Michaelmas Term most appointments will be take place virtually using either Zoom or Phone.
