It is important to look after your health while on campus. There are a few steps to take as soon as you have registered with a doctor in order to prevent common campus infections: make sure you get vaccinations for mumps and meningitis, which you can get easily and for free from your registered medical practice.
If you have any questions regarding your health when you arrive, see your GP.
Furthermore, it is important that you keep track of your physical and mental health throughout your time on campus. You should get enough sleep, ensure your flats are hygienic and wash your hands regularly to avoid passing infections around.
If you have the opportunity, it is important that you take some time to yourself every day to exercise or just relax, particularly with the pressure of studying. If you feel overwhelmed by the pressures of student life, or if you are struggling to settle into a new campus and way of life, contact student services and speak to our welfare officers.
