Experiencing discrimination can leave you feeling upset, unwelcome, frustrated and angry. It can help to speak to someone about how you are feeling and discuss how this has impacted you personally.

If you ever feel you are in immediate danger or at risk

  • Call the Police on 999 (or 112 from a mobile). 
  • If possible, try and find somewhere you feel safe. If this isn't possible and you are on campus you can call Security on 01227 922355.  
  •  You can also use the Safe Zone app to immediately contact Security if you are on campus.  

Support for students

  • Student Support and Wellbeing Advisers The Advisers support students in making informed decisions through one-to-one conversations, be it related to personal, general wellbeing, financial, housing, or academic matters. The Wellbeing Advisers can be a triage service to other more specialist areas within the Student Wellbeing Service, including  Mental Wellbeing and  Disability Services .
  • Support within your Academic School by talking with your Personal Academic Tutor, or a Programme Support Officer in your faculty. 
  •  Spectrum.Life offers immediate online, text and telephone support from qualified professionals. You can talk to them about anything, including stress, anxiety, low mood, financial worries, loss and grief, relationship difficulties, substance abuse issues and much more. They will work with you in getting initial help and liaise with the Mental Wellbeing Team for ongoing support.
