We are Student Wellness (SW), a unit of the Office of Student Affairs to support students’ well-being as you navigate your journey in NUS. Reach out to our SW Team, meet our Peer Student Supporters or visit our PitStop@YIH. We are delighted to be there to help equip you with self-care management tips, support your emotional needs or and lend a listening ear. Drop by at PitStop@YIH, our ‘healing home’, to rejuvenate and be recharged.
Our first ever Wellness Festival 2020 is happening from 1 to 16 October! The event is aimed at raising awareness on the importance of mental health and wellbeing among NUS students through the 7 PitStop Principles. It will be 2 jam-packed weeks filled with fun activities such as the PitStop Workshops (conducted via Zoom) where you can do crafts in the comfort of your own home, and the #PitStopChallenge where attractive prizes are up for grabs (i.e. iPad Mini, Apple Watch, Audio Technica Headphones)!
Your mental wellbeing is our priority and we hope to share self-care tips on how to better manage your stress while maximising your productivity and get to know the mental health resources available to you.
Wait no longer, come celebrate with us! Find out more here.
We are a caring team of Student Support Managers committed to supporting you as you navigate through your journey on campus.

Peer Student Supporters
If you want a peer to talk to, a patient listening ear or perhaps somebody who can guide you in the right direction, you may want to be in touch with our dedicated Peer Student Supporters
. They are here to journey with you. Peer Student Supporters are available everyday at the PitStop@YIH, 12:00pm - 6:00pm, Mon - Fri. In view of COVID-19, w.e.f 6 Apr, PitStop@YIH will be closed.
Drop by at the PitStop@YIH for a break. Rest, be healed and recharged. PitStop@YIH offers lots of space to chill-out, rest, talk and get engaged in many therapeutic art activities. There is even a games room to help you de-stress. In addition, this accessible space offers the latest assistive technologies to support our students with special needs. We are at Yusof Ishak House, Level 1, just behind 7Eleven. In view of COVID-19, w.e.f 6 Apr, PitStop@YIH will be closed.
To speak with our Peer Student Supporters and join them for fun and games, you can visit the Virtual PitStop sessions held every Tuesday and Thursdays, 1-5pm.
Faculty Student Support Managers
SW also partners with Faculty Student Support Managers (SSM). Demanding academic schedules and personal commitments can always leave a student overwhelmed. As a student, you may not know of the right avenues to approach for resources. Within each faculty's student life division, you have direct access to a designated SSM who can support, guide and connects you to the available resources on campus.
If you are seeking a listening ear, have concerns or are feeling stressed, please email OSAcares@nus.edu.sg
and one of our OSA Student Wellness Managers will be happy to arrange a phone or video call to chat with you.
