Finding support that works for you
University is a time of change. You change where you live, where you study and of course, who you live with. For some people, even your language changes!
Change isn’t easy, but you don’t have to go through it all alone.
All of these changes mean you may need a little help. There are a lot of different support networks available to you at UAL, from Student Services to articles right here on Halls Life. We've picked out our favourites to help you find balance in each of the 5 areas of student life; uni work, money, family/friends, wellbeing, interests/hobbies and health.
Finding support during the Coronavirus outbreak
During this time, it is important that you can access the support you need. There is a lot of misleading information and exaggerations circulating the internet and social media, so make sure you are getting the facts from trustworthy sources.
