Support in response to world events
When world events affect members of our community we know how important it is to have the right support.
We understand that world events can have an impact on many different aspects of our students’ lives and can also sometimes affect good relations between people. If you're affected by world events there are many places at the University where you can find support, whether you’re looking for practical help, advice, or someone to talk to.
Leeds University Union (LUU) help and support
LUU’s Help and Support team offer a professional, friendly service and can offer: general advice, help with personal, financial and academic issues, advice on group support and solidarity activity, and support for students experiencing harassment or a hate incident.
Contact the Help and Support team by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the Help and Support website to find out about how you can access their services.
School support team and your personal tutor/supervisor
Talk to staff in your school if you find that the situation is affecting your studies, so they can advise and support you during this time.
The Chaplains and the Muslim Student Adviser are here to listen and offer pastoral and spiritual support. They also help with group activity such as reflection, unity events and vigils.

If you’d like to talk about how current world events are affecting you, Leeds University Union student clubs and societies can also be an important source of support and friendship.
Leeds Nightline offers wellbeing support service for students at universities in Leeds. They are a student society based at Leeds University Union and aim to ensure all students attending universities in Leeds have access to the service. You can get in contact by instant message, email or phone.
If you experience or witness an incident of concern, you can tell the University through a disclosure form on the Report+Support website. You can share what has happened anonymously or provide your contact details so that a member of the Harassment and Misconduct Team can offer you support and guidance.
If you don't feel ready to tell us what has happened but would like to access support, you can explore the articles on the Report+Support website or you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
