Summer is finally here. For most of you it will mean the end of your academic year with us, but for those of you who will still be on campus we wanted to share some useful information about how student services, support and activities will operate over the next few months.
Staying in halls over summer?
We have now confirmed all summer bookings and contract extension requests, for those staying in halls. While you are still living in halls, our housekeepers will continue to visit you Monday – Friday as normal.
The accommodation team are here for you. All year round. If you need support or advice, please reach out by emailing [email protected].
Campus Support continues to be the one-stop shop for all your frontline services and the first point of call for any issues you may have. The team are all first aiders trained in mental health first aid and will be available 24/7 every day. Please call 01695 584227 or 07785 928 911 if you need any help or support.
Your health and wellbeing
We recommend checking your local GP’s website for their opening times over the summer break. Remember you can call 111 or visit 111.nhs.uk to get medical help 24/7.
You can get in touch with the Wellbeing team by emailing [email protected] or calling 01695 650988. You can also visit the Wellbeing webpages for more information, access to self-help resources and details about local healthcare services.
Out of hours, the Samaritans provide confidential support 24 hours a day if you are in any distress. You can reach them on 116 123.
Remember, Togetherall is free and available 24/7. The site provides a safe space online. Get things off your chest, explore your feelings, get creative and learn how to self-manage your mental health and wellbeing. If you want to find support then check out Student Space for guidance.
However you are feeling, help and guidance is available. Explore a range of trusted information, services and tools to help you with the challenges of student life. If you need urgent support, Lancashire and South Cumbria NHS Foundation Trust’s new Mental Health Urgent Response Line is available on 0800 953 0110. Lines are operated by trained mental health professionals who will offer help and advice. This number can also be used by anyone looking for advice if they are worried about someone else.
Shout’s 24/7 crisis service is also available by texting SHOUT to 85258.
The last day of service for the EdgeLink bus will be Saturday 22 July 2023. The service will resume in September 2023. Visit our travel pages to view the full timetable.
Changes to campus
While Sages is under construction, there is a new way to get from The Hub to Main Building. From Subway, head up the stairs past rooms Hub 1 and Hub 2. Then head back downstairs to be in the main corridor of the Main Building. There is also a lift available on the main corridor.
The Post Room
The Post Room has now moved. The new location is behind the Wilson Centre. Outside of term time, The Post Room will be open 8am – 5pm Monday to Friday.
The Students’ Union building is under construction. The SU has temporarily moved to The Arts Centre, Red Bar.

You can email the team for support and guidance at [email protected]. If you would like to read our online resources, head to our Student Support web pages.
Money Advice Team
We have a range of events on campus, running throughout the summer break. The Student Life Portal is the best way to keep up to date. Filter events depending on your interests. From academic development to sports, our famous Global Cafe and much more. There is something for everyone.
Some events require bookings, so be sure to book in advance to avoid disappointment.
