UNIVERSITY OF YO

WELL-BEING YUSU IS HERE TO MAKE STUDENTS’ LIVES BETTER. YUSU PROVIDES ADVICE AND SUPPORT FOR ALL STUDENTS AND IS THERE TO MAKE STUDENTS’ LIVES BETTER.

‘I always look forward to coming to the events. I met my closest friend, and it’s really helped me not have a total breakdown from depression since coming to university. It’s a lovely and supportive environment, and I am so glad you guys exist’ – Society Member The Advice and Support Centre or ASC provides information and advice that helps students who are experiencing difficulties – whether this relates to academic work, living on a budget, or getting along with housemates. YUSU ASC is independent from the University, we are uniquely placed to offer advice and support particularly for students who are reluctant or unsure about how to approach the University. We offer a confidential space to talk through concerns, provide guidance and support on University procedures (such as Appeals, or Academic Misconduct investigations) and signpost students to relevant partner services.

PROACTIVE APPROACH Food for Thought is a new programme of workshops that we have been piloting over the year. We know that food is a great way of bringing people together and fostering community. Making food is also a practical skill and essential to keeping healthy, eating well and saving money. Working in partnership with Student Support Services, colleges, and student associations, we have put together innovative workshops: • Knead Some Dough: bread making and budgeting • Slice of Life: Pizza making and getting tips for house-sharing
