X-Card service on Campus

Come to the X-Card drop-in to access:

• Free condoms, vaginal condoms, dams and lube
• Register for an X-Card (to pick up free condoms on campus)
• Takeaway Chlamydia/Gonorrhoea self-screening kits
• Takeaway pregnancy testing kits
• Leaflets and information on all aspects of sexual health

No intrusive or embarrassing questions - this scheme just provides a fair way of distributing condoms as well as answering sexual health queries and signposting to other specialist services. All volunteers are fully trained and drop-ins are friendly and confidential.

LGBTQ sexual health and welfare drop-in

The LGBTQ society welfare officers hold a sexual health and welfare drop-in where you can also sign up to the X-Card every Wednesday during term time, from 3-4pm in the Student Life Centre. 

The X-card is like a coffee loyalty card...

You can use it to pick up condoms at any of the locations and times listed below, so you do not need to wait to come to the drop-in.Image of the back and front of an X-Card

Whoever gives you the condoms will initial and date a square, once the squares have filled up you can come back to the drop-in to pick up another card.
