Health FAQs

Where do I go to register with a doctor?

There is a free Student Health Service available on campus. If you will be living in QMUL accommodation at Mile End or Whitechapel, or living in the borough of Tower Hamlets (E1, E2, E3 and E14), you are encouraged to register. If you are living in Dawson Hall at the Charterhouse Square campus or outside Tower Hamlets and are eligible for free NHS treatment, you should register with a doctor close to where you live. You can look up a list of local doctors.

We also advise that you get immunised against meningitis before arriving at QMUL, as young adults are at higher risk from the disease.

I have a disability – who should I contact?

The Disability and Dyslexia Service offers support for all students with disabilities, specific learning difficulties and mental health issues at QMUL.

I have mental health concerns – who can I contact?

The Mental Health Coordinator and Mental Health and Autistic Spectrum Disorder Adviser are the first point of contact if you are experiencing mental health issues at any stage during your studies.

If you have concerns about your mental health, please make an appointment with the Disability and Dyslexia Service.

Our Advice and Counselling Service also provides a range of specialist, professional and confidential services to support you with financial, welfare, legal, emotional and psychological issues. They also have lots of information about looking after your emotional wellbeing while at university.

I want to find out more about staying healthy as a student – where do I go?

During Welcome Week, we are holding a wellbeing hub on Wednesday 20 and Thursday 21 September at the Mile End campus – visit the Information Point in Library Square to find out more.

You can also get advice and support from our Student Health Service.
