What do I do if my enquiry is urgent?
The Advice Centre operates; Monday to Thursday 9am-3pm and Fridays 9am- 3pm. We do
not operate evenings, weekends, bank holidays or closures. The best thing to do is
complete and submit the enquiry form during our opening times, sharing as much
information about your circumstances as possible. We aim to get back to students within
48hours but sooner if your enquiry is urgent. When the Advice Centre is closed you can
contact the Community Safety Team on 024 7652 2083 in an emergency, if you or someone
you know is in immediate risk please call 999.
