Supporting your health and wellbeing during self-isolation

If you're studying at ARU and having to self-isolate, we'll support your health and wellbeing in a number of ways.

First of all, we'll be in touch to offer support. This will be a one-to-one phone call to talk things through, and we can guide you to further information and help if you need it.

One source of information is a new booklet, Staying Safe and Well in Isolation, which has been written by students at ARU. It's available online but we'll also send you a printed copy.

We'll also invite you to join a dedicated ARU Facebook group, virtual meet-ups if you live in University accommodation, and Microsoft Teams calls. These are all ways of accessing support and chatting to others who are self-isolating.

You can also safely join a range of online social events offered by our Students' Union and student societies, and wellbeing workshops. We've also compiled some ideas to help keep you active at home.

Our regular student support services will also be there if you need them. This includes our Counselling and Wellbeing Service, libraries, disability and dyslexia support, Study Skills Plus, and more. They can all offer online appointments and services.

It goes without saying that we'll take care of the basics: read more about how we supply food and other essential items to University accommodation, and continue to support your studies.


We know that COVID-19 has affected everyone in different ways, so if you have any worries or concerns, our Counselling and Wellbeing Service is here to help.
