Mansfield takes great care to foster a comfortable and tolerant environment for all its members.
There are many places students can turn to for advice and support. Subject tutors and the Senior tutor are always happy to talk and we have Junior Deans resident on both the College site and at the Ablethorpe annexe in Cowley Road who are responsible for the day-to-day welfare of students and on-call through the night. The College also has dedicated advisory panel of tutors from a variety of subjects as well as a Tutor for Student Welfare, a Tutor for Women and Chaplain, all of whom are happy to be approached should any difficulties arise.
The Junior Common Room has as its Vice President a student whose role is to take care of student welfare as well as a Women's Officer, Men’s Officer, and an LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered) Rep. For more information, visit the JCR Welfare web page (This is an external student run website and the College is not responsible for the content of this site).
In addition to the services provided in College there are also University-wide support services such as the University Counselling Service and student-run Nightline drop in centre.
Finally, the medical practice with which the College is associated has both male and female doctors who are available during their normal surgery hours to any student registered with them, and at any time in an emergency.
