Advice and Support

We provide a confidential, non-judgemental and free advice service for all Goldsmiths students. Our specialist advisers can support you with academic issues, and our digital guides can support you through student life.

 

Thank you for taking the first step towards seeking support. The SU strives to support students wherever possible. Our Advice Team can help with academic conduct issues and with final appeals. If this applies to you, please fill in this form to get in touch with one of our advisors.

However, due to our staff capacity, we won’t be able to advise those who need housing or money advice (including refunds of student fees). Unfortunately, our Sabbatical Officers will also not be able to provide advice or short term solutions for such matters. You can get in touch with a Sabbatical Officer if you would like to get advice and support for a campaign or a democracy/liberation project, such as planning a strike.

We have made a list below which will specify what other institutions (outside and inside the university) would be best suited to provide advice that goes outside our expertise. If you want to talk to someone about your issues, and are not sure what step to take next, please use our live chat system to speak to our Welcome Desk Operator, who works closely with the Advice Team and can signpost you to the right organisation.
