Support for our community around Israel and Gaza  

The events unfolding in Israel and Gaza are deeply concerning and as a global university community, we want to do everything we can to support our staff and students at this time.

Whether you or someone you know is directly affected, or the coverage of world events is affecting your wellbeing, there are lots of ways to access support. 

Where to go for support  

What is the University doing?  

Whenever something like this happens, our support teams identify staff and students who may be directly or indirectly affected and contact them to see how we can support them. 

We know that students from the region who are part of our community will either be directly affected or know people who are, and student support colleagues are working with Schools to contact these students personally. 

We will also be contacting staff who have been affected to support them too.  

How you can get help 


From student counselling to visa advice and faith-based support, there are a range of services available to you. LUU also offer help and advice, plus clubs and societies to get involved with to support your wellbeing.

How you can help 

If you want to donate to help people affected, well-known charities like Save the Children, Unicef and the Red Cross are already mobilising support. 

LUU societies are looking into hosting activities and events where you can show your support, and we will share details of these as soon as we can. 

Reporting harassment or bullying 

As a community, it is important that we support each other through challenging times and remember that racism, bullying or harassment are never acceptable. If you experience anything like this, our Harassment and Misconduct team are here to help, and you can learn how to report any incident through them on their webpages, or go straight to reporting and speak to an advisor.
