Wellbeing, facilities and services

The impact of coronavirus raises a lot of questions within our University Community and we have answered as many as we can below; updating these as the situation evolves. Please email student.centre@bucks.ac.uk if you have any other queries that are not answered below and ensure you follow our official social media channels for immediate updates.

Your Wellbeing

This can be a stressful time for many different reasons and all elements of your wellbeing is our priority. All students have access to online support 24/7 from Big White Wall, or the The Multifaith Chaplaincy is available for chats and support, or our counselling service is still open online, please email counselling@bucks.ac.uk.

University Facilities and Services

We’ll open as many COVID-safe facilities as we can by September including the library, gym and catering outlets, in line with the UK Government’s advice. Our labs, studios, and skills and simulation spaces will all be open too. We’ll make sure they’re COVID-safe and ready for you to apply the theory you learn in practice. Measures include:

  • Screens at receptions, help desks and catering counters
  • One-way systems and dedicated entrance and exit routes
  • Clear social distance signage around all of our buildings
  • Frequent cleaning at all locations throughout each day and ready supplies of sanitiser

From Freshers’ Week onwards, Bucks Students’ Union will offer a broad and diverse range of events and activities through The Big Deal, all completely free of charge. And all within the recommended COVID-safe guidelines. Find out more about this year’s programme, from entertainment, to societies and internships, finding jobs, and boosting your employability here.

If you need the library now, before we are back on campus, you can find out how to access library resources online.

The service is temporarily suspended until further notice. But take a look on the Bucks Students' Union website for more information before the new term starts.
