Student Wellness

SUSS promotes and enhances the well-being of all students through the development of a proactive and enabling culture. Having an environment that promotes positive well-being allows students to achieve their full potential and be active contributors in the community. Research has found that healthier and happier students learn better and are more successful in all domains of their lives.

The Office of Student Life provides students with multiple platforms to build positive relationships and develop new skills to increase their depth of self-awareness, self-management and relationship management. To encourage an inclusive and sustainable culture of well-being in campus, the Office takes a holistic approach by engaging the SUSS community – student and staff. Together with our well-being leaders and local partners, we advance positive prevention programmes such as wellness events and workshops, social networks and support platforms that aim to improve the overall well-being of students.
