Important information about Pause@UoB and how and where you can get support:

Pause@uni is a place for students aged up to the age of 25, where you can talk about anything that may be worrying you. We are a friendly team of trained and experienced workers, and are here to offer a listening ear, and share support and advice if needed. 

We are open every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 11-5pm at 1, The Lodge North Gate for 1-2-1 sessions. You do not need to make an appointment, just drop in to see us.

Pause@Uni will be open until Wednesday 20th December and closed for the Christmas holidays until Tuesday 9th January 2024

We also have weekly groups and social sessions for students of all ages. Join our free crafternoons in the Library Lounge, Main Library, every Wednesday, or pop into Comfort Zone every Thursday for a cuppa and friendship.
