Student Healthcare at SLU

Last changed: 07 November 2019

Beginning your studies at university is perhaps one of the biggest changes to your life and it can represent a major step in terms of your personal development. At SLU, we want our students to be healthy. We therefore provide access to some form of student health clinic at all our study venues. SLU also works with the University Chaplaincy were you can get support.

The success of your studies can be affected by a number of factors. It is not only determined by conditions at the university, but also by your own life situation. At the Student Health Centre, you can get help with study-related problems, such as:

  • anxiety
  • worry about exams
  • fear of speaking in front of groups
  • difficulty sleeping
  • stress

The staff available at the Student Health Centre vary according to location. Usually there are both nurses and welfare officers at the student health clinics.

Everyone at the Student Health Centre is covered by an obligation of confidentiality. This means that no information relating to students is passed on to SLU.

You should not contact the Student Health Centre for general illnesses. You should instead go to a health centre, doctor’s surgery or hospital. For example, if you need help with medicines, injuries, colds, etc.

University Chaplaincy

SLU works with the University Chaplaincy at the various study venues. The chaplaincy offers one-to-one discussion, bereavement groups and crisis support, among other things. All are welcome to take part in the chaplaincy’s activities.

Here are a few examples of what the chaplaincy offers at the various venues:

  • Support, one-to-one discussion
  • Choral singing
  • Workshops
  • Peace – finding the right balance between performance and rest
  • Meet people from different religions and share experiences
  • Film nights
  • Cookery
  • Meditation
  • Crisis management
  • Bereavement groups

The student chaplains hold discussions on life issues. All students are welcome and you do not need to believe in God.

The student chaplains can also help to arrange contact with other congregations and churches.

All student chaplains have an obligation of confidentiality. This means that nothing you say will be passed on to anyone else.
