Student Counselling and Wellbeing at Leeds University Union

SCW@LUU is a partnership between the Student Counselling and Wellbeing Service and Leeds University Union. 


Same day appointments are single session appointments for students who may be experiencing emotional, psychological or mental health difficulties but are unsure of what, where or how to gain support.

Same day appointments are not available to any students already receiving support from or have submitted an online registration form to Student Counselling and Wellbeing.

If you wish to access support through Student Counselling and Wellbeing, but would prefer a single session rather than a series of ongoing appointments, please book a same day appointment.


During the appointment, you will work together with a member of the Student Counselling and Wellbeing team to explore the issue(s) that are causing difficulty or distress and identify the most appropriate advice, guidance, or signposting to support.

By the end of the appointment, you will have a clear idea of the best next steps to take, which may include:

  • Trying self-help resources and online programmes such as Togetherall
  • Applying for support through the Student Counselling and Wellbeing Hub
  • Support from within the school, wider University student support services, disability services, LUU/Advice
  • Recommendation to make an appointment with your GP or advice and guidance about community-based support services such as Leeds Mental Wellbeing Service


Appointments are available weekdays between 9.30am-3pm. These are available in person at Leeds University Union or online via Zoom, if preferred.

You can book a same day appointment through the Student Counselling and Wellbeing Hub or by contacting us at or 0113 343 0526.

Please ensure that you provide us with the following information when seeking a same day appointment via email:

  • Full name
  • Student ID
  • Contact telephone number

We aim to provide a same day response to all students, however please be aware that if demand is high, you may be asked to get in touch the following day or later in the week.
