Wellbeing & Pastoral Support in College

The principal contacts about wellbeing and pastoral support are the Senior Tutor (Tel: 0191 334 2636) and the Assistant Senior Tutor (Tel: 0191 334 2642). They can help you get in touch with the right people at the right time. To make an appointment to see them, please contact Brenda Mitchell in the Student Support Office located on the ground floor, Rectory (Tel: 0191 334 2610).

At Hatfield we also have a team of students who have received 'Nightline' training, and who provide peer support. The JCR Welfare Officer is elected annually and must have completed Nightline training before being eligible to stand for the post. The Welfare team provide an impartial, trustworthy, and confidential resource for you. The Welfare Officer and team work closely with the Senior Tutor and the Assistant Senior Tutor.

The Welfare team run a series of campaigns throughout the academic year highlighting issues to promote a healthy lifestlye and wellbeing.

All Hatfield first-year students also have a College Mentor who will signpost students for pastoral support.

The Students’ Union also provides advice to students. Follow this link to get in touch.
