Student Advice Service

There are lots of people and organisations willing to listen and qualified to help. Student Advice Service has now launched Advice Drop-in Sessions. While students can always book an appointment, sometimes it's easier to just drop in. Our Advice Drop-in sessions allow students to see an advisor without having to make an appointment. Students will be seen on a first come, first served basis.   Click here for the Student Advice Service's code of practice.

Advice Drop-in Sessions
Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 12pm-2pm at the Graduate Union (17 Mill Lane)
Drop-in sessions may be restricted to 20 minutes. If there is still more to discuss and explore, a follow-up appointment will be made with the student.

If you'd like more information about the drop-in sessions, email or phone 01223 746 999.

Alcohol

We all enjoy alcohol in various forms, especially when out with friends and socialising but remember to drink in moderation and use your common sense. Too much in a short space of time is dangerous for the body to cope with and under its influence it is possible to behave out of character and this can put you at risk. BE CAREFUL! Recommended units for women is 14 units/week and 21 units for men, not all in one night, 2 to 3 units max and try to have 2 alcohol free nights per week.

University Dentist

The University Dental Service was sold in December 2016 and is no longer affiliated with the University. The new owners and managers are, however, committed to providing continuity of treatment to NHS patients already registered under the care of the Practice. Existing patients can make an appointment by calling in to the practice or telephoning 01223 367870.

Students wishing to register as an NHS dental patient locally can find out which practices in the city are accepting NHS patients using the NHS search facility.
