Get help

You can talk confidentially with many people at the University and Students' Union. They are all here to help you and listen to you and crucially no one will judge you or make you do anything that you don't want to do.

 

NTSU Information & Advice Service 

Provide free, independent, and confidential advice, information, and representation services. You don't need an appointment, and can simply phone, email, or drop-in to the offices at every campus to talk to someone.

 

NTU Student Support Services 

Offer a wide range of services, including health centres and wellbeing services such as counselling.

 

NTU Student Accommodation Services 

Help you if you have any issues relating to your accommodation. There'll also be a warden in your accommodation to deal with any emergency pastoral issues and to manage the University's Student Code of Behaviour within your residence.

 

Student Residence Assistants (RAs) 

Usually second year, third year, or postgraduate students who already understand what it's like to move into a new place with new people at NTU. They'll be available every night and all weekend to talk through any issues you're facing and give you support and advice. They'll help create a sense of community, and deal with any antisocial behaviour.

 

NTU Dignity and Respect Advisory Service 

Open to all students and is free and confidential. Dignity and Respect Contacts provide a confidential, informal and timely source of information and support on harassment and bullying issues.

 

University Tutors 

Are there to help guide you through your time at NTU. They can signpost you towards relevant services to make sure that you get all the support and advice you need. You should already have been told how to contact your tutor, but if in doubt you can ask your Subject Administrator

 

Friends and support networks. 

Don't suffer in silence. If something is upsetting or bothering you, talk to someone. Your friends are there to listen to you and can even contact services on your behalf for advice and support. If you don't feel able to talk to your friends, then you can always talk to someone within a support network such as a club or society.
