Health and Wellbeing

We want you to thrive at St Antony’s. Staying well in mind and in body is important for all College members and we know that how you feel impacts how you work.

We have a welcoming Welfare Team, which works with a wider welfare network including the Dean, College Nurse, Disability Advisory Service and the GCR Welfare Officers. They are happy to advise you on how you can access academic support if you are unwell, and where you can find other support through the University and in Oxford.

The College is linked with Summertown Health Centre, who provide GPs services. We advise all students to sign up to them via the NHS, so you can receive healthcare during your studies – you never know when you might need it.

We also run several events each term to support your wellbeing, ranging from Warden’s Breakfasts, where you can discuss College matters with the Warden, to Welfare Lunches, where we invite a guest to speak on a relevant topic.

Taking care of your mental health is also a priority whilst at Oxford, which is an academically challenging environment. Whether you have a long term mental health condition or are experiencing mental health challenges for the first time, we can offer holistic support by guiding you through academic procedures and signposting you to appropriate support.

At St Antony’s, we support students with a range of disabilities. We encourage disabled offer holders and students to contact the Disability Advisory Service as soon as possible. This includes invisible illness, mental health conditions, and specific learning difficulties.

The Lodge is available 24/7 to offer support for any emergencies.
