Every year King's College London Students' Union (KCLSU) holds a wide range of activities and campaigns across all campuses, all of which have been inspired by the ‘King’s 5 Ways to Wellbeing’ and help to encourage better student wellbeing.
Held every November, KCLSU Wellbeing Week gives students an opportunity to discover new wellbeing initiatives by trying out a range of activities and events which are organized by both students and staff.
Take Time Out
Take Time Out is a KCLSU Wellbeing campaign that runs in the first few weeks of exam season to promote better physical, mental and social wellbeing among students. Students can de-stress from exams by visiting a 'Take Time Out tent' at the Guy or Strand campus and take part in a range of fun activities and receive outreach support.
