Wellbeing Centre

Wellbeing Centre

We are delighted to share that Planning permission has been granted to create a new Wellbeing Centre at the University of Edinburgh.

Putting health and wellbeing at the forefront of design, student life and the university experience, the Wellbeing Centre project involves the refurbishment and extension of 7 Bristo Square.

Integrating Student Disability Services, Student Counselling Services, Edinburgh University Pharmacy and Edinburgh University Health Service, creating an environment to support positive physical and mental health of both students and staff is a key design driver.

In the university’s press-release, Andy Shanks, Director of Student Wellbeing at University of Edinburgh, said:

“This development is a fantastic example of the University’s commitment to delivering excellent wellbeing services. The Wellbeing Centre is an exciting initiative that will put student wellbeing at the heart of the University’s city centre campus, making it easier for students that need help to access support, and expanding the range of spaces and services on offer.”

The Wellbeing Centre is scheduled to open in late 2019.
