NYU in London considers student well-being an essential ingredient of the overall experience of students abroad. To that end, we have arranged several avenues through which students may access support:
- Donna Drummond-Smart is available for consultation, in order to confidentially address a range of wellness-related concerns. When such concerns are of an emotional nature, Donna is able to offer short-term counselling sessions, as well as referral into the community, as needed. Donna also offers several workshops, particularly for Freshmen, including topics such as Relationships, Study Skills, Time Management, Culture Shock and Exam Preparation. You can contact Donna by either dropping into her office in 6 Bedford Square (Room 214: Office hours 10am-6pm Mon-Fri) or by emailing her at email@example.com
- NYUL has established a relationship with the Gower Street Practice, a National Health Service agency in close proximity to NYUL, whereby students can seek medical as well as psychological consultation.
- NYUL students’ health insurance through HTH also gives access to a large network of professionals, addressing both medical and psychological concerns.
In a crisis, NYUL students can access the NYU in London Exchange freephone 24 hours a day on 0800 316 0469, where they can be connected with an NYUL staff member. Students can also use this same freephone number any time, free of charge, to access the NYU Wellness Exchange in New York, or send an email to : firstname.lastname@example.org
In addition to the resources highlighted above, the NYU in London Student Handbook provides students with a wealth of information regarding health and welfare, including many details regarding specific referral sources.
