Students' Unions' Advice Service at the University of Cambridge                                     



The Students' Unions' Advice Service offers free, confidential* and independent support to all Cambridge University students.

You can come to the Service with any issues or problems that you might experience as a student:

  • Academic-related issues
  • Homesickness and culture shock
  • Personal issues
  • Disciplinary issues
  • Bullying/harassment
  • Mental health issues
  • Welfare concerns
  • Taking time out from studies (Intermission)
  • Resolving disputes
  • University & College regulations

The Students' Unions' Advice Service can support you in a number of ways. We can discuss your concerns with you, explore what options are available to you, and represent you at a college or University level if necessary. We also act as a signposting service – if we can't assist you, we can help you work out what other sources of support are available that might better suit your needs.

For more information about who we are, please see our contact us page

The Students' Unions' Advice Service is based at Cambridge University Students’ Union and the Graduate Union on the Upper Ground Floor, 17 Mill Lane, Cambridge CB2 1RX, so feel free to drop in and chat to a member of the Service at any time, Monday to Friday, 9.00 am - 5.00 pm.

You can also make an appointment by emailing or by phoning 01223 746999.

Or come along to one of our Advice Drop-in Sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12pm-2pm.

Our office is accessible to disabled students; there is a lift providing level access. Please let us know if you have any additional requirements such as use of the induction loop or materials in large print as this will allow us to ensure that these are in place for your visit.

*This service is confidential – whilst we may share information within the Service, no information about you or your situation will be given to anyone outside of the Service, except in very rare circumstances (our confidentiality policy can be found in the confidentiality section of the website).
