Support on campus

By BzBarlow 01 Nov 2020

There's no denying that Student Life can come with challenges. From balancing your time and studies to the pressure of fitting in and making new friends, it can be stressful.

And at Heriot-Watt, we want to make sure you stay healthy and aware of where to go if you need support...

Residence Life team The Residence Life team is on campus 9am – 10pm, and the team consists of experienced students and staff, who can offer you advice and support on anything- from how to deal with your messy kitchen, noisy (and nosy) neighbours, money worries and your wellbeing.

Just pop into the Residence Life hub at the Christina Miller west during the opening hours or contact us by email ( or message us on Facebook or Instagram (HWUReslife)

The Advice Hub Offering free, impartial and confidential advice and support on anything you need to talk about, the Advice Hub is in the Hugh Nisbet Building, between the Student Shop and the cash machine.

Currently, the Advice Hub is closed but they are available online, Monday to Friday, 10am to 4pm.

You can also contact us by email or message us on Facebook or Twitter.

Student Wellbeing Services If you're facing difficulties that are affecting your wellbeing, mood or behaviour, then Student Wellbeing Services provide a range of support, guidance, activities and advice to help you get back to yourself.
