SAC Opening Hours

SAC News

Term Time 2019

The service is open as per the schedule below. With the exception of offered drop-in times, advisers will only be able to help you via booked appointments.

Drop-ins are only for quick queries (up to 15 minutes). Appointments are only available during adviser hours. Please note that due to the very high level of enquiries we sometimes receive, appointments can go very quickly and there may be a wait before you can speak to an adviser. For a contract review, we need 48 hours' notice.

* Housing cannot be covered during drop ins * 

Finally, it is not permitted to book an appointment on someone's behalf. As we are a confidential service, the student in question must contact us directly and we cannot speak with parents, family members or university staff etc.

As a general rule, there is email and telephone cover 9-5pm Mon-Thurs and 9-4.30pm on Fridays.

Spending time with animals can alleviate worry, provide comfort and mitigate against feelings of isolation and loneliness. Combining this with fresh air and physical exercise, can be a cocktail for positive physical and mental wellbeing.  Bessie is available for walks and company, most weekdays at 10am, 12pm and 2.30pm, for up to an hour.
