Faith@CampusLife's listening service offers a listening ear to whoever needs it – irrespective of religion, if any.

SU Sports, Societies, and Activities
You may find it helpful to look at joining a sports club or society as these are a great way to make new friends, get to know people and have fun. If you would like to look at the list of Societies available you can check them out on the Students Union website. You can also check out upcoming events and activities here.
Family & Friends
Don't underestimate the benefit of talking to your family and friends about how you are feeling. Sometimes a problem shared is a problem halved. Be careful not to depend on talking to your family and friends from home all the time though - you need to give yourself the chance to meet new friends!
