Caring for the wellbeing of students

The Student Counselling Centre (on the top floor of the Bantu Stephen Biko Building) provides a professional, free service to all Rhodes Students experiencing psychological problems. The Counselling Centre operates from a holistic wellness model and supports students in terms of their physical, academic, social,

  • Self-help material and information pamphlets covering various topics.
  • Provision of referral information (if we are unable to help you, we can tell you about other services that may be able to help).
