If you have any problems, questions or issues you need to sorting out or just to talk about we are your go-to guys. If we can't offer you the help you need, or you don't feel comfortable talking to us then you are also welcome to approach any of the Peer Support Team, the Welfare Dean Emma Percy or the College Nurse, Alison Nichols. We can also get you in touch with welfare and peer support at other colleges if you'd rather not have something dealt with in college.
We can provide:
- Durex condoms (pleasuremax and extra-safe)
- rape alarms

Please pop round if you need any of the above or email firstname.lastname@example.org and the items will be delivered to your pidge as quickly as possible. Requests will be treated in strictest confidence, so please don't feel shy about asking. Also remember that the condom machine in the Beer Cellar is now stocked and is on free vend.
