Counselling and welfare provision within the College
There are many people you can talk to at Caius if you need advice, support or help, no matter what the issue.
Each student is allocated a Tutor - a member of the academic staff whom you can go to with any concerns, whether to do with your academic work or any other aspect of your life. You can also choose to another tutor, for example you might specifically wish to see a male or female tutor, and there is always a designated duty tutor available outside normal hours.
The GCSU/MCR Welfare Team
The College's student union (GCSU) has a range of welfare officers who are trained to offer support and advice. The GCSU Welfare Officer can be contacted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, while the MCR Welfare Officer can be reached at email@example.com. The LGBT+ officer can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Peer Support Team
The Peer Support Initiative is coordinated by staff at the University Counselling Service. A peer supporter is not a counsellor but is a student (graduate or undergraduate) trained to know when referral to a counsellor or other help would be appropriate.
The College Nurse
The College Nurse, Natasha Kear, is available to help with any problems which are causing concern or distress, whether major or minor. She is based in the College's own Health Centre, located in the Old Courts.
The Dean, the Revd Dr Cally Hammond, has an open door for confidential help and counsel of any kind, guidance on matters of Christian faith, enquiries about confirmation and vocation, and confession.
