In 2013, Unite Students launched a new approach to student wellbeing, following a period of research and consultation. Staff in our properties have received development and guidance to help them respond to students in distress or who express concerns. An essential aspect of this approach is to refer students to specialist support in their institution or within the community. Good quality partnerships with university Student Services teams are therefore essential.
