Living independently, balancing uni work with a part-time job and a social life, adding to your CV and applying for jobs: that’s a lot to handle, which is why it’s important that you know who to turn to if things become too much.

We are the latest additions to LJMU’s Student Advice and Wellbeing Services and are here to support you through your university journey. We are here to help with any issues you are having that are affecting your studies, whether you have problems relating to your mental wellbeing, practical issues about studying here, or you just want someone to talk to about the stresses of university life.

Our top tip for starting uni? Never be afraid to ask for help. LJMU has loads of support available to all students. So if you have a question or a problem, please ‘Just Ask’!

We are based in your Faculty and offer daily drop-ins and both in-person and telephone appointments. You can also send an email to Any information you give us is confidential and we will only share it with academic staff if you want us to. We will do our best to help or if you need more specialist advice, we will refer you to the right people or services to help you. If you have a specific problem and know the right team to contact, for example the funding team, you can still contact them directly.

We also want to help you to make the most of your University experience – we offer workshops throughout the academic year and can tell you more about the fantastic opportunities that the University has on offer.

Get more info about us including when we are available for drop-in sessions at each faculty on the Student Support pages.
