We want you to have an unrivalled experience at UWU. Along with academics, you’ll make friends for life, discover new passions and learn invaluable skills that will set you up for a bright future. Nestled at the foot of the Namunukula Mountain, the beauty of the Uva Wellassa University is natural rather than man-made. The incredible views coupled with hiking tracks and forests attract many visitors looking to spend time in nature.

Mentoring and Counselling Services
Mentoring programs are available to help develop a supportive and effective learning community at the University. Mentoring gives new students the opportunity to meet peers and build networks, learn about student life and settle in to the University. Mentoring process starts by introducing mentors to the students during the integration programme and remains as the mentor until the graduation of the student. Students are encouraged to meet their mentors regularly to get the guidance in their academic life.
Counselling Services is a team of professionals that provides programming and services to help you lead a healthy and balanced life. We strive to provide a secure, supportive environment for students of all orientations and backgrounds.
