Health & Wellbeing
At Peterhouse we make every effort to support our students in achieving their full potential. The following resources are available to all junior members in support of their health, wellbeing and general welfare throughout their studies.
Current members can follow the links below for more information or to book an appointment.
How to access support
Students seeking support relating to health and wellbeing can book appointments with the College Nurse and Wellbeing Advisor (at Peterhouse Health Centre) or the Mental Health Advisor, both of whom are qualified health professionals with many years experience.
Students can also access counselling through the Cambridge University Counselling Service (UCS).
The Assistant Chaplain / Welfare Officer is available to discuss general welfare issues or signpost towards appropriate support within the College or University. The Welfare Officer and members of the JCR also organise workshops and welfare activities in College.
The College Tutors have general oversight of all aspects of the life of students in their charge during their time at Peterhouse. They are responsible for their academic, social and financial well-being.
For advice and guidance for prospective and current disabled students, it is possible to attend the Cambridge University Accessibility and Disability Resource Centre. Their advisors can assist students in accessing a range of services providing support throughout their studies.
The JCR and MCR have Student Welfare Representatives who can provide peer support and advice to fellow students.
