There are a number of support services available to you during your time at University.

Based on the Top Floor of the Students' Union Building, the Student Advice and Support team offers impartial and confidential advice and support on a range of issues, including finance, disabilities and specific learning differences, visa and immigration matters, mental health and well being, and more.

In addition, a team of Student Resident Assistants (SRAs) are based in each Hall or cluster of Halls and are there to look after the welfare of residents. The SRAs are managed by the Community Liaison Officer.

You can go to them with any concerns you might have - homesickness, exam worries, relationship or family problems, tensions between flatmates or simply if you need someone to talk to in confidence. SRAs work from 6pm- 6am but and you can also contact the Community Liaison Officer, based in Central Building at the Hillhead Student Village, during the day to discuss any concerns.

They provide friendly, confidential advice and point you in the direction of appropriate professional services.  There is also an extensive programme of events in Halls which you can view here: https://www.abdn.ac.uk/infohub/events/.
