Alcohol & Drugs

We understand that alcohol is a big part of the University lifestyle and it is important to be aware that you can make better choices while drinking to ensure your own safety.

Drugs can also be an issue for many as addictions can easily get out of control.

If you feel that drugs and alcohol are becoming a problem for you or a friend, please have a look at these online resources.
