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.
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 team by sending them an email or visit their 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.
