Mental health support

If you have a mental health condition that affects your studies, we may be able to help.

Mental Health Support Team

The Mental Health team support students with a diagnosed mental health condition. We offer specialist mentoring support to remove barriers to study for students with mental health difficulties. This support is funded through Disabled Students Allowances and is provided through a mix of internal support and external agency support.

We work with students on areas such as:

  • anxiety, depression and other mental health difficulties
  • concentration and memory difficulties
  • motivation
  • organisation and time management.

We can also:

  • support students in applying for the Disability Student Allowance (DSA) which funds one to one Specialist Mentoring and in some cases IT equipment and books
  • help you explain your needs to your tutor
  • recommend alternative arrangements for examinations and other assessments
  • assist you in planning a realistic way to study and formulating plans that structure the approach to the work
  • advise on maintaining a healthy balance of other elements in life
  • liaise with Student Financial Services regarding funding issues.

Self-help and advice

Silvercloud is our online system designed to help with a range of mental health issues. The content is motivational, easy to use, interactive and relevant to students. It can be especially helpful if you are experiencing anxiety, depression, stress or eating issues.

Please also see our information and advice page for useful information.

Getting around


Nottingham Trent University are working with AccessAble to provide detailed access guides to the buildings, services and rooms across our campuses.

Assistance dogs

The University recognises that a dog kept and used by a disabled person (as defined by the Equality Act 2010) wholly or mainly for the purpose of assisting that person to carry out day to day activities (an “Assistance Dog”), will require access to the University’s estate, relevant buildings and University-owned student accommodation.

Assistance dogs are trained by members of Assistance Dogs (UK), or by an equivalent organisation in another country.

Assistance dogs have formal identification and are permitted to accompany their owners at all times and in all places within the United Kingdom (unless there is a genuine health and safety risk).

If you have an assistance dog, please contact us to let us know you wish to bring them on site so we can answer any questions you may have around this.


Parking at the City Campus is very limited. However, if you are a Blue Badge holder or need to bring your car to the University because of a medical condition, we may be able to provide a dedicated parking space. Parking is not guaranteed, and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. For further information, please email us.
