Student Support and Wellbeing
We’re here to support and help you throughout your time at Strathclyde. All of our services are available to all students.
SHOUT 85258 is a free, confidential, anonymous 24/7 text messaging support service whose service is there to support you and is for anyone struggling to cope.
We recognise that difficulties can arise during your studies. We urge you to use the support available to you. If you are not sure who can help, contact someone in your Department who will be able to direct you, or access one of the University’s support services.
If your academic progress is, or potentially will be impacted, we would also ask you to make sure that you log your circumstances on PEGASUS (in line with the University’s Personal Circumstances Procedure)
Information recorded in this way is only accessible by a small number of staff, but by making sure things are formally recorded, we can make sure your circumstances are considered and mitigation is put in place where appropriate.

As a progressive, people-orientated institution of learning, the well-being of our staff and students is central to our values. In order to keep the University and community safe we have guidelines which we expect everyone to adhere to - find out more here.
