St Peter’s takes its responsibility for the care of its students very seriously. There is always someone on hand to whom students can turn for confidential advice whatever the problem or concern.

The Health. Wellbeing and Welfare Team includes both senior and junior members of the College, who work closely with each other to ensure that an appropriate range of expertise and help is available.

Matters of general concern are discussed at termly meetings, to which the College Doctors (from the Jericho Health Centre), the College Nurse, a representative from the University Counselling Service, MCR and JCR representatives and a representative from the University Disability Service are invited.

In an emergency please dial 999 or phone the Porters' Lodge at (+44) 01865 278900.

Health, Wellbeing and Welfare events

Each term, student and staff members of the Health, Wellbeing and Welfare Team put on events aimed at giving students a break from studies.

We have frequent onsite visits from dogs who are connected with College. Scott, the Cairn Terrier, enjoys pats and will run after any balls thrown (sometimes he might even return them). Lotti and Rue are black Labradors who love attention and students!

The Welfare Officers run occasional snack tables, giving away free snacks and chatting to those passing through the Linton Quad. They also offer wellbeing walks with students treated to hot chocolate, ice cream or related seasonally appropriate treats on the way.

Both the JCR and MCR offer their own programmes of wellbeing events, including teas, 'crafternoons' and games nights. Cross-College events such as yoga for all are sometimes arranged.
