Pause drop-in sessions

Welcome to the Pause@uni Intranet Page

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 offer "brief intervention" which means we help you make sense of any issues you wish to speak about, and help you navigate other support services if you feel it may help you.

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 is open throughout the year, including all of the University vacations.

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. 

Come and visit us to find out what we do. 

Every Wednesday between 10am and 11am, we have an open house. Come and meet the team, see around the Lodge and garden, and ask any questions you may have. Have a cup of tea and a biscuit with us. We do not run sessions during this time.

You may find it useful to see what visiting Pause@uni looks like. We have created this visual story below for students who may find it helpful.
