We offer free, confidential, and impartial support to all Cambridge University students. You can come to see us with any issues that you have - whether personal or academic. Please email or call us to book an appointment with one of our Advisors.

  • Directions to the Students' Unions' Advice Service
  • Opening hours Monday - Friday 9am - 5pm. The service is open every weekday throughout the year except for Bank Holidays and other days when the Students' Union is closed.

  • Advice Drop-in Sessions - Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 12pm-2pm

    While you can always book an appointment, sometimes it's easier to just drop in. Our Advice Drop-in sessions allow you to see an advisor without having to make an appointment. You will be seen on a first come, first served basis.

    Drop-in sessions may be restricted to 20 minutes. If there is still more to discuss and explore, we can make a follow-up appointment with you.

  • What you can expect when accessing the Students' Unions' Advice Service

  • 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).
