Talk to Someone
Get to know people
There are times when we all need to talk. Sometimes just with friends. Making new friends can sometime sbe difficult and a good way to meet new people is to join a club or society. KCLSU
have lots of clubs and societies who organise activities where you can meet people that may have the same interests as you.
Find out what is happening at the residences. Each residence has people responsible for organising entertainment called the EUC (Entertainment and Users Committee). They are students who have volunteered to help organise activities in return for a place in a residence and work together with the Senior Students to organise events throughout the year. If you would like to see something organised or want to get involved contact your Senior Student or the EUC Chairperson.
Staff at the residences
Sometimes you may want to talk to someone about a more personal matter. At King's we have staff in all areas of the college that are able provide assistance and advice if required. Within the residences Senior Students are trained to assist students with minor difficulties and will be able to refer you to other support services if they are unable to help.
The Management team in each hall are also available to speak to you for any issues that might be concerning you. They are generally available during the day but a Duty Manager can be contacted via reception every evening if a matter is urgent.
Wefare and advisory service
Sometimes you may want to speak to someone specifically trained to help you deal with emotions or personal problems that you might be experiencing. Kings has an excellent Student Advice and International Student Support
team and a number of counsellers
that can provide help and offer a confidential service.

If for any reason you cannot contact a welfare advisor at King's you can contact London Nightline by phone, email or Skype. This is a confidential service run for students by volunteers and you can contact them with enquiries, to ask for advice or just to speak to someone.
