The Student Wellbeing Centre will be running various workshops and skills groups throughout the academic year. For more information on these, please book a drop-in appointment to chat further with an advisor.

Our Wellbeing Lounge is a place to come and have a chat with other students and the Student Wellbeing Team in a relaxed, informal setting. It helps to ease feelings of loneliness/homesickness and form friendships.

Our Wellbeing Lounge takes place every other Wednesday at the Global Lounge in the David Chiddick Building from 6pm until 7pm.

We look forward to you joining us for some cheery company and conversations. Please email your interest to: studentwellbeing@lincoln.ac.uk 

This is a 4-week skills group for anyone who has difficulty in managing a healthy relationship, whether past or present. This includes all personal relationships you may have – family, friends, your partner. Each session will focus on a theme, with several subjects covered within each theme. There will be group discussions, exercises and work to take away which can be revisited to further develop learned skills. The aim of the course is to develop skills to improve the relationships in your life.

This skills group aims to give you a better overall understanding of anxiety; how it affects us and exploring techniques to help you take back control. This course runs for 4 weeks and will have a different focus each sessions. By the end of the 4 weeks, hopefully the course will have provided you with a toolkit to help you to better manage anxiety.

Fresh Start is here to help you with the transition into university life, either for the first time, or if you’re returning to continue your studies. These informal sessions will cover topics such as adjusting to change, homesickness and being independent, and help you to settle in to university as quickly as possible.

Fresh Start will restart in the new academic year along with an online version. You can see the self-help guide and pre record video from previous online sessions here.

Manwell is a wellbeing support group for male students (this is trans inclusive), to talk openly about any challenges they may have experienced & connect with like-minded individuals. Interested? Call 01522 886400 or email studentwellbeing@lincoln.ac.uk to find out more.

Exposure to drinking culture and recreational drug use can sometimes feature as part of student life. Excessive substance use can affect your judgement, lead to unsafe situations and have long term implications on your health. ‘We Are With You’ is Lincoln’s drug and alcohol service and they will be joining us to provide advice sessions. These sessions will be helpful, whether you are experiencing concerns around alcohol/ substance use, or just generally want to be better informed. 

For more information about these sessions, please get in touch with the Student Wellbeing Centre by emailing studentwellbeing@lincoln.ac.uk or by calling us on 01522 886400.

We have an allotment plot based at Lincoln College which we visit on Tuesdays for two sessions: an A.M and P.M

Getting outside, socialising and developing practical skills are all great ways to boost your wellbeing. At the allotment you will be joined by two members of the Student Wellbeing team and get the opportunity to meet other students.

We’d love for you to join.
Get in touch if you’re interested in joining us!
