Student Wellbeing

Wellbeing is not just about being happy nor is it the absence of illness. A positive sense of wellbeing involves feeling good and functioning well. It is essential for flourishing and enables us to enjoy life and to overcome challenges.

In NTU, we endeavour to enhance and support the wellbeing of everyone so that each can excel and thrive at their own time. We adopt a Campus Community Approach to Support and Care through which the various Departments, Schools, and Halls work together to deliver an effective level of care for all.

The University Wellbeing Office (UWO) serves as the central wellbeing care and support provider and coordinator in NTU, ensuring the community’s wellbeing needs are effectively met.

Professional counselling services are provided by the University Counselling Centre, a unit of UWO.
