At the University of Suffolk we recognise the importance of being here if you need us and aim to provide a supportive, positive and encouraging environment for all students.

It is therefore important to be aware of the specialist support services on offer that will be able to answer any questions you have, provide assistance to you in case you encounter any personal or academic difficulties, and enable you to fulfil your potential. 

Student Services

The Student Services team offer a range of information, advice and guidance services to students which include matters relating to:

  • Finance
  • Careers and Employability
  • Disability and Learning Difficulty Support
  • Health and Wellbeing
  • Counselling

Students can book one-to-one appointments with an adviser or attend one of the regular drop-in sessions and workshops run by the team.

Further information about the areas that the Student Services team cover can be found on the website.

If you are studying at Ipswich, and would like more information about the Student Services team, or would like to book a one-to-one appointment, you can book through the Infozone by calling 01473 338833.

If you are studying at one of the partner colleges, you will need to contact the relevant HE Administrator for further information. Contact details can be found here.
