Find support when you need it

Welcome Week is over, but your Students’ Union is here all year round to give you support, guidance and advice when you need it.

We know that coming to University can be tough, whether it’s your first time living away from home, you’re studying in a new country or you’re back in education after a break. It’s important to talk to someone if you’re feeling low, and that’s why we have a whole host of services you can call on when you need a helping hand.

Whether you’re looking for advice on housing, your course or your money, want guidance on employment issues, or need someone to talk to about your health and wellbeing, we’re here for you.

Students’ Union Advice are always here to give you the help and support you need, no matter what the issue may be. Drop them an email, give them a call or make an appointment and pop in to speak to an Education or Welfare Adviser. You can find them on Level C of the Portland Building on University Park campus.

Feeling homesick, stressed or just need someone to talk to? Get in touch with Nightline. They’re a confidential listening and advice service run by students for students. They’re here from 7pm to 8am every night during term time, and 24 hours during exam time, and there are lots of ways to contact them.

But there are lots of other ways to find support when you need it. Take a look at our welfare guide for more info.

Remember, there are lots of people here to help you, so reach out and talk to someone.
