Student Support Services

The Student Support and Advice Office has moved, but not very far! The team are now located on the top floor of the Students' Union Building (formerly The Hub) in Elphinstone Road.

You’ll find the reception desk at the far end of the Careers Service, through the double doors. Just follow the signs.

There have also been a number of changes in staffing over the last few months, both within the Student Support and Advice Office, and within the University Counselling Service.  Below is an up-to-date list of personnel and contact e-mail addresses.
