Student Life

At the University of Suffolk we recognise the importance of being here if you need us. The Department of Student Life are committed to continuing to deliver the range of services and we have made changes to the way we work to ensure that staff will always be available, whatever the circumstance. All services have transitioned to online delivery and we can provide the same responsive service and a great experience through video, telephone call, email and chat, as well as at our campus.    
Please see our dedicated page COVID-19 Student Life Updates for information on service delivery and how services may be affected due to COVID-19. This page will also be linked to from our University Coronavirus FAQs.
Student Life are committed to providing free and impartial information, advice and guidance as well as specialist events, such as workshops, employer talks, fairs and initiatives.

If you know the service you would like to connect with, you can make an appointment online or email the team directly.
