Peer support groups

Check out the peer support groups and spaces available for students.

The Bubble

The Bubble is a comfortable, friendly place on campus for students to take time out and connect with other students.

Storycraft

Storycraft is a student-run peer support writing group, bringing creative minds together in a safe and fun environment. At Storycraft, we nurture creative writing skills with prompts and discussion questions. Our group allows students to feel grounded and supported at university, which is helpful in the academic environment.

For more information about this group, contact storycraft@vuw.ac.nz.

Check out our self-published story collections and see what we have been up to recently on Storycraft website.

Cultural Coffee Club

The Cultural Coffee Club is a student-led group supporting the University’s refugee background and international students. The club is a way for students to discuss mental health through a cultural lens and uplift one another to succeed at university. Join us for a cup of coffee or tea once a week in the Bubble.

For more information about this club, email culturalcoffeeclub@vuw.ac.nz.

Canine Friends in the Bubble

Canine Friends Pet Therapy dogs regularly visit the University and the Wellbeing team has a special relationship with a dog called Wolfie, who visits the Bubble on Tuesdays from 11 am to 12 pm during term time. No booking is needed, just come along and spend some time with the friendly, fluffy Dachshund.
