The Compass

The Compass is a first port of call for when you need information and support. 

Our friendly advisors answer questions, unpick complex queries and refer you to the right team when you need more in-depth advice. 

Whether you have questions that are big or small, you can contact The Compass and ask the team anything. 

The Compass is here for all students whether it's help finding your way around, advice about welfare, wellbeing and general student life, support as a disabled student, religion and spirituality or just to offer a friendly ear to make University life as stress free as possible.

The Compass is staffed from 9am to 5pm every weekday during term time. You can contact the team in person, by email or telephone, or you can access Compass Online to view our frequently asked questions, book an appointment, or log an enquiry anytime.
