On the Welfare Officer's blog you can find the new drop-in rota: starting today.
Remember, drop-ins are an opportunity for you to talk to another student in complete confidence about anything that is affecting you at the moment. This really could be anything and the team are trained in a whole host of issues as well as where to look next for further support if necessary. The welfare room is located opposite the laundry room on the bottom floor of Hollingside.
Also, condoms can be bought at a special price of £2.50 for 18. The condoms we stock include Extra Safe, Elite and Pleasuremax - all are sold at the same price. You can buy a pack from the welfare room during drop-in hours as usual, but if you prefer we encourage you to email one of the Welfare Team with your order in confidence. If you do have a regular girlfriend/boyfriend please do not use the emergency supplies as these are limited to a handful per block per week.
