Health and Wellbeing

If you have a short-term or long-term medical concern or illness that is affecting you, the Student Union can provide you with support and advice to minimize the impact of this on your time at RGU.

Your mental wellbeing is also incredibly important. If you feel in need of emotional or pastoral support, whether this is a new or ongoing issue, there are a number of support services throughout the University, and we can help you get in touch with these.

The Union also provides a discreet contraception delivery service for all genders, as well as supplying pregnancy tests. We want you to be safe whatever you do, and won’t ask invasive questions, nor judge in any way.

We also have information available on the structure of the Scottish health system, and who best to turn to for medical advice and treatment.
