Wellbeing and International Support

Our Wellbeing and International Support Teams are here to support you during your time at Lincoln University.

Things not going well with study or some other aspect of your life? Are you worried about a friend? Or having second thoughts on whether being at uni is right for you?  We are here to help you. Contact our Wellbeing Advisors at [email protected] or call us on 021 589 475. One of the Lincoln Wellbeing Team will arrange a time to meet you and have a confidential discussion about any issues you are experiencing.  

If, for any reason, you can’t get hold of the Wellbeing Team – or if you’re calling after hours, or a friend needs urgent emotional support, just free phone or send a free text to 1737.
