By UALHalls 11 Sep 2023

We are excited to introduce the all-new "Here4u" wellbeing programme, a dedicated initiative designed to provide unparalleled support and assistance to students throughout their stay in our Halls. Here4u is built to make your university experience even more enriching and fulfilling.



A Fresh Look and Stronger Support

Look out for our vibrant new logo that symbolises our commitment to being there for you every step of the way. We understand that your time at university can be filled with challenges, both academically and personally, and that's why we have revamped Here4u to offer even stronger support.

Coffee and Chat

Feeling a bit lonely and in need of a friendly conversation? Our "Coffee and Chat" sessions are here to brighten your day. Sign up through our simple form, which is also available throughout the halls. You will be paired for a one-hour session with a committee member from your Hall. It's a chance to unwind, connect, and share thoughts with a welcoming face. Find out more on this initiative in our article here.

Supporting Your Essentials

We understand the financial challenges students can face. That's why we've introduced initiatives to support your basic needs:

  • Sanitary Products Dispensers: Access to sanitary products year-round in hall toilets to alleviate the burden of the cost of living.
  • Dry Food Dispensers: Find food dispensers in common rooms stocked with essentials like rice, oats, and snacks. There will also be some reusable tupperware placed next to the containers for you! Keep yourself nourished throughout the day by cooking communally with your flatmates using the free ration.

Wellbeing Basket

Stress and homesickness are common during university life. To help you cope, we've introduced the Wellbeing Basket. Located at the reception, this basket is filled with Well-Bags. Treat yourself to self-care products, including creams, masks, tea, biscuits, and more. It's a little boost to make you feel better during challenging times.
