Can we help you?
We offer advice to all students currently registered at UCL. Our service is also available to:

- recent graduates where there is an ongoing matter relating to their studies, for example a student complaint or disciplinary issue
- students on interruption of studies with matters relating to their studies, for example returning to study and support to study

If you are a UCL or Union staff member making an enquiry on behalf of a student, please email us at [email protected]
