Welcome to Vanbrugh Wellbeing
The Vanbrugh CSA Wellbeing Sub-Committee raise awareness of issues related to the wellbeing of the student body and communicate any wellbeing needs to the College Wellbeing Team, and represent liberation groups within the student body.
In addition to a Head of Wellbeing and representatives, the Wellbeing sub-committee houses the Disabilities and Access-, International Students’-, Off-Campus Wellbeing-, BAME- and LGBTQ+ Representatives. Some of these positions might be vacant, so contact us if you want to get involved!
If you have any concerns or ideas about the general wellbeing of students on campus, please do contact us!
The Wellbeing Sub-Committee regularly communicates with the Vanbrugh College Wellbeing Team, and so even if you raise concerns to us that we ourselves are not able to handle the college might be able to help.

The Second and Third Year Contact (STYC) Scheme is a university wide scheme who are on hand to help you throughout Arrivals Weekend and Freshers Week, and in Vanbrugh this is no different! Starting before you even arrive in York, our student volunteers will be on hand answering any questions and anxieties you may have in pre-arranged group chats with your other housemates.
Then, when you finally arrive, the STYCs will be on hand to help you move into your accommodation, and will remain on hand to assist you in any troubles you may have or answer questions throughout freshers week - STYCs often organise tours into the city or to good food shopping locations during this time, and accompany students to freshers week events.
If you’d like to apply to be a STYC, applications open every year throughout the Easter Break, so do not miss out!
The Vanbrugh Second and Third Year Mentor (STYM) Scheme is a group of undergraduate and postgraduate students who help ensure that first year students are guaranteed the best possible start to university life. University is more than just about continuing your education, for many, it marks the start of living independently. This is a lot to process, and certainly not something you are expected to do on your own.
Throughout the year, STYM’s will be hosting various events, such as housing talks, exam stress and drop-ins so we can catch up, see how you are doing, and also help in any way we can.
STYMS are also available throughout the year if you have any questions about university life. We have all been first-year students, and we know how difficult it can be!
Make sure to follow the STYMstagram page for all updates regarding STYM events! And If being a STYM is something you’d be interested in doing, applications open every year throughout the Easter Break. We cannot wait to meet you!
