Deadlines and exams can make this a particularly stressful time of year. Your mental health is as important as your physical health and it is essential to seek help if you feel stressed, depressed or vulnerable.
The University and Liverpool Guild of Students will be running a series of initiatives throughout January to try to help ease the pressure you may be feeling.
If you have general exam queries, please feel free to contact the exam enquiries team on 0151 794 6750 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
From Monday, 7 January to Thursday, 24 January the Library will be running the #LibraryonTour initiative, offering quiet study space for the assessment period. Check dates and times for each venue carefully as there is some variation.

They deal with everything from housing issues to exam stress. Call 0151 794 6868 , email email@example.com or come along to a drop-in appointment available between 1pm and 3pm weekdays.
These tools will help you access IT services during peak periods:
PC Finder uses a GPS location service to help you find available PCs on campus. There are plenty of computers in Teaching Centres besides those in the libraries, so you’ll be able to find a computer to use near to your location if the libraries are busy.
Located in the Rendall building, speed stations are designed for quick tasks like printing, checking emails or visiting websites.
You can easily print from your own device using Print Anywhere. This means you can work from your own laptop in the library, for example, and still use the printers there.
If you need assistance with an IT problem, check out our self-service portal where you can browse our helpful knowledge articles and FAQs, request help or report an issue.
Extra support is available, particularly if you feel you are suffering from more than a bout of exam nerves. The following are some useful contact details for University support services that are all free and confidential to access all year round:
There are also regular groups and workshops run by the Counselling Service. A list of other support networks you can access can be found on our Counselling Service webpages here, including The Samaritans who offer a 24-hour helpline (116 123), the Students Against Depression website, and Liverpool Light – a mental health café that provides a welcoming and safe space for people experiencing mental health related crisis. The service is run by trained mental health support staff and operates from 6pm to 12pm, seven days a week, offering an alternative to the use of A&E for people at times of crisis or in need of targeted social support out of hours.
If you or anyone else is in immediate danger, please call the police or ambulance service on 999.
The University is continuing to invest in mental health and wellbeing support for students and has recently recruited a new team of wellbeing advisers, two additional mental health advisers, an additional disability adviser and will soon be recruiting a CBT Therapist and additional counsellors to enhance our central services.
