Welfare and support services for all students

Student Welfare and Support Services offers a range of services which are free to students, that can help you thrive at University. This includes the Counselling Service, the Disability Advisory Service, the Sexual Harassment and Violence Support Service, and the Student Resolution Service.

The Counselling Service can support you through difficulties you are having, through confidential individual and group therapy, and workshops. There are also a selection of supportive resources such as podcasts that you can find on the website.

The Disability Advisory Service (DAS) provides information and advice on disability issues, and facilitates access to study for all students who have a disability, such as sensory or mobility impairments, long-term health conditions, specific learning difficulties, autism spectrum conditions, or mental health difficulties.

The Sexual Harassment and Violence Support Service provides confidential and independent support to any student who has been affected by sexual harassment or violence. The service supports students in all situations, whether the experiences happened in Oxford or elsewhere, and whether it was recent or in the past.

The Student Resolution Service aims to mediate difficult conversations which may arise if you are in conflict with another student. Mediation can help in cases such as: accommodation issues, noise complaints, access to resources, research group conflict, and conflict within a club or society.
